State Comptroller DiNapoli positions New York Employee Retirement System investments for a “low carbon future”
New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli announced an investment strategy that will raise the New York Common Retirement Fund’s (Fund) commitment to sustainable investments to $5 billion. The cornerstone of DiNapoli’s plan is the creation of a $2 billion index that will exclude or reduce investments in companies that are large contributors to carbon emissions like the coal mining industry, and increase the Fund’s investments in companies that are lower emitters. DiNapoli announced the new low emission index in Paris, where he is participating in an investors’ panel as part of the United Nations Climate Change Conference.

State Comptroller notes that limited regulation of adult day care programs poses potential risks to vulnerable adults
Many social adult day services programs (SADS) in New York operate without regulations or licenses, leaving disabled adults or seniors at potential risk, according to an Audit released by State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli. The audit is the first in a series looking at issues affecting the elderly in New York.
