Climate change solutions: The NFTA leads the way

The Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act is a clean energy agenda passed by state lawmakers in 2019. It mandates a greenhouse gas emissions drop of 40% below 1990 levels by 2030, and 85% below 1990 levels by 2050. Reaching these goals is up to consumers and industry alike. It is ambitious. So ambitious, Business First put together a panel of experts to review progress to date and potential impact down the road. The NFTA’s Executive Director, Kimberley Minkel, joined others in December to discuss the policy.

“The infrastructure that is needed is significant, but the payoff long term will be generational,” Minkel said. Firsthand experience with the intrinsic costs of climate change has convinced her that the benefits ahead well outweigh the current price.

The Authority has made, and continues to make, long strides in mitigating its effect on the climate. From wastewater treatment to solar panels to new electric buses, it remains focused on a sustainable future.
