|Goals|| America's Pledge aims to:
Collect data on non-national climate action to quantify and report on progress made towards the US pledge (Nationally Determined Contribution) under the Paris Agreement. Communicate the findings and results of our research and data collected from non-national actors to the international community and the United Nations. Catalyze further climate action in the near term by providing detailed roadmaps for similar business-level, city, and state action in the US and, potentially, in other countries around the world.

|Have you changed or strenghtened your goals|
|Progress towards the goals||On April 3, 2018 state attorneys general and mayors from across the country are vowing to challenge the Trump administration’s decision to roll back national clean car standards and uphold the standard adopted in 2012 that would help to ensure clean air for their residents. In a declaration, elected officials from more than 50 cities and over 25 states make clear their opposition to the rollback of a federal rule that sets targets for an increasingly clean, efficient and high-performance vehicle fleet through model year 2025.|
