Statement on the U.S. Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) from the Co-Chairs and Advisory Committee of America Is All In
Today, the United States has taken an important step forward by setting a national climate target, which will drive economic growth and re-establish the federal government’s global leadership and credibility in addressing the climate crisis. Meeting – and ultimately exceeding – this goal will create jobs, strengthen our economy, reduce climate-related threats, and support a healthier, more prosperous, and more just future for our country.
We, the Co-Chairs and Advisory Committee of America Is All In, a coalition of thousands of institutions around the country, commend the Biden Harris administration for establishing the NDC emission reduction target at 50-52% below 2005 levels by 2030. Recent analyses from America Is All In and others have shown that this target is achievable and would deliver major benefits to communities and our economy.
