Non-federals are essential for climate action

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)
