The Under2 Coalition brings together over 270 governments representing 1.75 billion people and 50% of the global economy.  

Our members commit to keep global temperature rise well below 2°C with efforts to reach 1.5°C

Over 40 states and regions have committed to reach net zero emissions by 2050 or earlier. This is essential to limit global temperature rise.  

Under2 General Assembly 2021


The Under2 Coalition Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) is an ambitious climate agreement for subnational governments.

It fortifies our commitment to become a 'net zero coalition' by 2050 - with net zero emissions targets as a baseline for membership.

Governments which sign the Under2 MOU become part of the Under2 Coalition.

Our leadership and governance
