According to a new report by America’s Pledge, over 2,500 non-federal actors in the U.S. have pledged their support for the Paris Agreement goals. Together, they make up more than half of the American economy. Cities, counties, states, businesses and educational institutions are all working in a number of sectors including transportation, electricity generation, industrial energy use, forestry and emissions.

America’s Pledge is an initiative led by California Governor Jerry Brown and UN Special Envoy on Cities and Climate Michael Bloomberg to quantify the climate actions and recent commitments from non-federal actors.
