U.S. and China Reach Joint Agreement to Cut Emissions

The United States and China, the world’s two largest emitters of planet-warming greenhouse gases, announced a joint agreement at the COP26 United Nations climate summit in which both nations pledged to do more to cut emissions.

Our joint declaration builds on the statement that our governments released in April, which represented our first step. And at that time, we agreed that, we agreed on a number of actions in order to continue discussions to try to find a way to make progress. We also expressed a shared desire for success at this COP on mitigation, adaptation, support and frankly, all of the key issues, which will result in the world raising ambition and being able to address this crisis. Now with this announcement, we’ve arrived at a new step, a roadmap for our present and future collaboration on this issue. The United States and China have no shortage of differences, but on climate, on climate cooperation is the only way to get this job done.
