Organisational structure In response to the U.S. federal government’s decision to withdraw the United States from the Paris Agreement, Governors Andrew Cuomo, Jay Inslee, and Jerry Brown June 5, 2017 launched the United States Climate Alliance – a bipartisan coalition of governors committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions consistent with the goals of the Paris Agreement. Smart, coordinated state action can ensure that the United States continues to contribute to the global effort to address climate change.

Description We are still in represent more than 2,700 leaders from America’s city halls, state houses, boardrooms, and college campuses who have signed the We Are Still In declaration since its initial release on June 5, 2017. This unprecedented network of networks represents more than 127 million Americans and $6.2 trillion of the U.S. economy. Spanning all 50 states — red and blue — we are demonstrating America’s enduring commitment to tackling climate change, ensuring a clean energy future, and upholding the Paris Agreement. To date, We Are Still In is the largest cross-section of local leaders in support of climate action in the United States.
Objectives In the absence of leadership from Washington, states, cities, counties, tribes, colleges and universities, businesses and investors, representing a sizeable percentage of the U.S. economy will pursue ambitious climate goals, working together to take forceful action and to ensure that the U.S. remains a global leader in reducing emissions.

Advicing business to join other ICIs in CIP like: Science-Based Targets Initiative, RE100, Renewable Energy Buyers Alliance (REBA), Portfolio Decarbonization Coalition, Montreal Carbon Pledge. Cities are advised to join "Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate & Energy" State to join "Under 2 MoU"
