The Under2 MOU brings together states and regions willing to commit to reducing their greenhouse gas emissions.

Reasons for “Under2”

 The Subnational Global Climate Leadership MOU is nicknamed the Under2 MOU in reference to:

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

The Under2 Coalition’s shared goal of limiting greenhouse gas emissions to 2 tons per capita, or 80-95% below 1990 level by 2050.
