We're the largest global network of states and regions committed to achieving net zero emissions by 2050 at the latest.

Today, the coalition represents 178 individual states, regions, provinces and subnational governments along with several other national and subnational entities: a total of more than 270 actors, totalling more than 50% of global GDP.

Our leadership and governance

The Under2 Coalition has five co-chairs who guide the direction of our policies:

  • KwaZulu-Natal
  • São Paulo
  • Scotland
  • South Chungcheong (Chungnam)

We also have a larger steering group, representing the diversity of our membership.

Our steering group meets quarterly and supports the co-chairs in building the range and scope of the Under2 Coalition's work.
