Under2 Coalition

The Climate Group acts as Secretariat to the Under2 Coalition and works directly with government signatories and partners of the Under2 MOU to drive net-zero ambition and action.

The Under2 MOU is a commitment by sub-national governments to reduce their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions toward net-zero by 2050. Central to this is the public commitment by all signatories to reduce their GHG emissions by 80-95% on 1990 levels, or 2 metric tons of carbon dioxide-equivalent per capita, by 2050.

The Under2 Coalition brings together over 175 governments, spanning six continents and 36 countries committing to reduce their GHG emissions toward net-zero by 2050.

Signatories also submit a plan that outlines their unique set of actions to reach their reduction goals and commit to cooperative efforts around the implementation and monitoring of action to meet these goals.

The Under2 Coalition provides a global forum for sub-national governments to work together to get on a trajectory consistent with 2050 carbon neutrality. The Under2 Coalition sets the tone for bold climate leadership and provides an effective global partnership model for parties to the UNFCCC. We are sending a clear signal that net-zero by 2050 is achievable, desirable and leads to faster results.

Together they represent over 1.2 billion people and a collective GDP of US$28.8 trillion, representing over one third of the global economy.

To achieve its objectives, the Under2 Coalition’s work is based on three work streams:

1. Developing 2050 pathway plans – supporting Under2 MOU signatories to develop short and long-term goals and pathways to 2050.

2. Scaling innovative policy solutions – supporting the upscale and sharing of the best policy solutions.

3. Measuring progress – ensuring governments have the expertise and systems in place to assess their emissions accurately and track progress against their targets.
