About the MOU

By signing the agreement each government commits to limiting emissions to 80-95% below 1990 levels, or to below 2 annual metric tons per capita, by 2050 – the level of emission reduction necessary to limit global warming to under 2°C by the end of this century.

Although not legally binding, the Under2 MOU demonstrates a clear and lasting commitment from signatories to reduce emissions in the decades to come. Governments who sign or endorse the Under2 MOU become part of the Under2 Coalition.
