The United Nations Foundation is the fiscal sponsor for two important projects: the Global Climate Action Summit, hosted by the State of California, and the U.S. Climate Alliance. In September 2018, the Summit will convene governors, mayors, CEOs, and other sub-national climate champions from around the globe to support and implement the Paris Agreement. The U.S. Climate Alliance is a bipartisan coalition of 15 U.S. states committed to upholding the emissions reduction goals of the Paris Agreement and demonstrating leadership on climate change. The Alliance member states collectively represent more than 36 percent of the US population, over $7.6 trillion in GDP, and nearly 20 percent of U.S. emissions.

The U.S. Climate Alliance is uniquely suited to help states deliver on historic opportunities for bold climate action and maximize the potential of the Inflation Reduction Act to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

for the U.S. Climate Alliance  
The U.S. Climate Alliance is a bipartisan coalition of governors representing 24 states, with more than 60% of U.S. GDP, 55% of the U.S. population, and 40% of U.S. emissions. These governors are committed to driving the nation’s ambitious climate agenda by working in partnership with each other, the federal government, and the international community. The alliance has an important role to play in implementation of federal climate investment laws by supporting state engagement with federal agencies, supporting the development of state decarbonization plans, and supporting effective deployment of federal dollars to drive decarbonization and community economic development.
