The Paris Agreement moves forward

April 22, 2016



Today -- Earth Day -- more than 160 nations are signing the Paris Agreement, a key step toward a sustainable, low-carbon future.


The Paris Agreement commits all countries to contribute their best efforts to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and sets up a system to hold countries accountable and ramp up efforts over time.


On the eve of the agreement’s signing, a dozen major companies joined a C2ES-sponsored statement supporting swift implementation of the Paris Agreement.


And a new C2ES paper outlines progress toward meeting the U.S. goal of reducing emissions 26 to 28 percent by 2025.
