The Under 2 MOU brings together states and regions willing to commit to reducing their greenhouse gas emissions and will galvanize action through the Conference of the Parties (COP 21) in Paris and beyond.
2 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 Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) scientists say is needed to avoid dangerous climate change.
The MOU’s shared goal of limiting greenhouse gas emissions to 2 tons per capita, or 80-95% below 1990 level by 2050.
