The U.S. Climate Alliance, which was established in 2017, is a bipartisan coalition of governors committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions. This commitment is consistent with the goals of the Paris Agreement which aims to strengthen the global response to the threat of climate change and undertake ambitious efforts to combat and adapt to its effects. What was once a commitment of 16 states and Puerto Rico has grown to 25 members, representing 55 percent of the U.S. population and an $11.7 trillion economy. This Alliance has pledged to implement policies aiming to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, track and report their progress and facilitate new and existing policies to reduce emissions and promote clean energy deployment.
Since its inception in 2017, this alliance has reduced the country’s collective greenhouse gas emissions 14 percent below 2005 levels which is halfway toward our participation of the U.S. Paris Agreement target for 2025. By establishing more ambitious emission reduction targets, this alliance is capable of making a significant impact on global emissions through its leadership and action and continues to identify innovative alternatives and works on strategic partnerships to grow clean energy economies.
