The Under 2 brings together states and regions willing to commit to reducing their greenhouse gas emissions.

Reasons for “Under 2”

 The Subnational Global Climate Leadership MOU is nicknamed the Under 2 MOU in reference to:

The goal of limiting warming to below 2°c, which the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) scientists say is needed to avoid dangerous consequences.

The Under 2 Coalition’s shared goal of limiting greenhouse gas emissions to 2 tons per capita, or 80-95% below 1990 level by 2050.
