In this Un In Action, a UN program helps bring ambient temperatures down in New York by episode painting roofs white with the special coating in order to create more reflective surfaces around the city.
NYC: CoolRoofs to Combat Climate Change
NYC °CoolRoofs is a City’s initiative to tackle climate change and support job seekers at the same time.
The project trains and engages volunteers in applying white, reflective surfaces to rooftops, which reduces cooling costs, cuts energy usage, and lowers greenhouse gas emissions.
The initiative can help bring New York City closer to reaching its goal to reduce the gas emissions by 30 percent by 2030.
