U.S. Climate Alliance Annual Report: Alliance States Take the Lead

The Alliance was formed in response to the U.S. federal government’s decision to withdraw from the Paris Agreement, and we remain committed to meeting our share of the U.S. target under that agreement – a 26-28% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions below 2005 levels by 2025. In our first U.S. Climate Alliance Annual Report, we take stock of the progress we are making towards achieving that objective and discuss future initiatives that will help us meet or exceed our goal. 


Inventory of Best Practices

The United States Climate Alliance is already yielding results. Alliance states are leading the country in combatting climate change through policies that encourage investment in clean energy, energy efficiency and climate resilience,  resulting in a 15% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions between 2005 and 2015 alone. The purpose of this inventory of best practices is to learn from each other about polices that clearly work‎ and to encourage strong collaboration that will lead us to achieve or exceed our goal of meeting our share of the targets under the Paris Agreement.
