The Department of Citywide Administrative Services (DCAS) Division of Energy Management (DEM) serves as the hub for emissions reduction and energy management for the City government portfolio.

Beyond 40×25, 50×30, and 80×50, the City has also made other energy-related commitments, such as pledging to install 100 MW of solar photovoltaic on City buildings by 2025.
