State Initiatives

States are playing a critical role in the fight against climate change — through investments in green infrastructure, ambitious renewable energy commitments, and efforts to reduce carbon pollution.

  • Under 2: Signatories commit to reducing their greenhouse gas emissions 80 to 95 percent below 1990 levels, or limit to 2 annual metric tons of CO2-equivalent per capita, by 2050.


  • The United States Climate Alliance is a coalition of states committed to the goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions consistent with the goals of the Paris Agreement.


  • The National Energy Efficiency Registry (NEER) is a web-based platform that helps states document achievement of energy and environmental goals, disclose regulated entities’ compliance activities, and drive voluntary investment in energy efficiency and energy and water conservation initiatives.
