Basil Seggos, New York State DEC Commissioner

NYS Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) Commissioner Basil Seggos offset the CO2 emissions from his travel with DEC staff to eight in-person public hearings across the State in April and May 2022 as part of the Climate Action Council’s public comment period on the Draft Scoping Plan. Hearing locations included the Bronx, Brookhaven, Binghamton, Albany, Syracuse, Buffalo, Brooklyn, and Peekskill. There were a total of eleven public hearings including two virtual hearings.  New York State’s Climate Act is among the most ambitious climate laws in the world! Visit for more information. Thank you, Commissioner Seggos, for your leadership on Climate and your ongoing support of the Finger Lakes Climate Fund!
