Advancing a Pro-Worker, Pro-Climate Agenda.


About Climate Jobs NY

We are a growing coalition of labor unions representing 2.6 million working men and women at the center of New York’s economy. We are committed to building a clean energy economy at the scale climate science demands, creating good union jobs, and supporting equitable communities and a more resilient New York.

Together we can #BuildBackBetter

We have a once in a generation opportunity to ensure that the path to a low-carbon future result in good jobs that provide family-sustaining wages and benefits for communities across the state.

Numerous studies have shown that there is major job creation potential from tackling the climate crisis, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and transitioning to a low carbon, sustainable economy.

The public investments we make now will be on a scale not seen since the Great Depression, and they will either further entrench our reliance on fossil fuels or put us on the path to a low-carbon economy. We need to make sure it's the latter. We also need to make sure that the jobs we create are good, family-supporting, community-sustaining jobs; we can’t afford to lose another decade of wage growth like we did coming out of the last recession.
