Blueprint 2030

An All-In Climate Strategy for Faster, More Durable Emissions Reductions​

The All of society approach

An all-in, whole-of-society approach to climate change mitigation that combines the unique power and strengths of each part of society gives us the best chance for the rapid, durable, transformative change needed to cut emissions by at least 50 percent by 2030 and set the stage for a fully decarbonized economy well in advance of mid-century.

Non-federals are essential for climate action

Analysis in Blueprint 2030 shows how an all-in climate strategy can deliver 52% reductions in greenhouse gas emissions from 2005 levels by 2030.

Non-federal actors have driven and sustained US climate progress over the last decade; bottom-up leadership has built foundational policy as well as political cover and demand for Congress and the Executive Branch to scale action, together driving U.S. emissions reduction progress. Examples include:  

  • 2009 vehicle emissions rules (initiated by state standards)
  • Greater emissions reductions than required under the Clean Power Plan and extremely cost-competitive wind and solar power (initiated by state RPS’s, public- and private-sector commitments, and public pressure)
  • HFC phaseout (initiated by state rules and business advocacy)

The United States’ ability to meet its NDC and contribute to a climate-safe future relies on continued non-federal leadership to accelerate the pace of change.

In this whole-of-society approach, every part of society has a critical role to play:

  • Federal: Set national standards that create new policy floors and build on bottom-up momentum; invest in infrastructure, financing and incentives, and research and development, which all send strong market signals.
  • State: Push ambition and set the pace of standards, invest in state action, and test new ideas.
  • Local: Accelerate ambition and test new ideas with local action, codes, and zoning.
  • Business: Shift markets and develop and deploy new technologies.
  • Civil Society: Inspire, educate, and mobilize the public; create demand for new technologies and approaches; build public support for bold action; hold others accountable.
