Climate Champions Welcome America Is All In

We welcome the United States’ official rejoining of the Paris Agreement today By Climate Champions | February 19, 2021

We welcome the United States’ official rejoining of the Paris Agreement today, a major boost to international climate cooperation en route to COP26. It sets the stage for new commitments by the Biden-Harris Administration, building on the dedicated and transformational work from US cities, states, businesses and investors over the last four years.

The benefits of climate action can cut across society – creating jobs, lifting people out of poverty and inequality and strengthening public health. The Biden-Harris Administration’s all-of-government approach will turbo-charge the American race to net zero emissions and greater resilience by 2050. The united call from cities, states, businesses and investors, through the “America Is All In” alliance, for a halving of US emissions by 2030 represents a recommitment to science-based climate policy, and an unprecedented opportunity to unleash innovation, create sustainable jobs and regenerate nature at a pace and scale we’ve never seen before. The more local governments and the private sector accelerates towards net zero emissions and resilience, the higher the US government can raise its ambition.

We look forward to welcoming a new wave of American partners to the Race to Zero and Race to Resilience, and hope to welcome the US into the Climate Ambition Alliance, demonstrating a real commitment to build back a healthier, safer, and more resilient future worldwide after Covid-19.
