What is the Subnational Global Climate Leadership MOU or Under 2 MOU?
The subnational Global Climate Leadership MOU, known as “Under 2 MOU”, is an agreement on emissions reduction that is complementary to the reporting mechanism provided in the Compact of States and Regions. The MOU identifies actions being taken by jurisdictions around the world and promotes greater ambition on climate change than is currently being contemplated in the international process leading to Paris.
Each signatory commits to limit emissions to 80-95% below 1990 levels, or below two metric tons per capita, by 2050 – the level of emission reduction believed necessary to limit global warming to less than 2oC by the end of this century
