New Jersey will become the first state in the U.S. to require builders to consider the impact of climate change in order to gain project approval.

 The governor said the state will not sign off on a proposed building project if it does not align with broader efforts to combat climate change. A non-compliant plan would have to be amended or it would not be approved.
Murphy’s plan employs seven key strategies for emissions cuts. These include expanding use of electric vehicles, accelerating the growth of the state’s renewable energy sector, strengthening energy efficiency standards, and expanding the clean energy economy.
