The White House released a press release saying that US and China will take another significant step towards combating climate change. The release said that “The United States and China will sign the Paris Agreement on April 22nd and take their respective domestic steps in order to join the Agreement as early as possible this year.”
*Both Presidents recognize the Paris Agreement marks a global commitment to tackling climate change and the need for a quick transition to low-carbon, climate-resilient economies.
*To accelerate clean energy innovation and deployment, they will work together to implement the goals of the Mission Innovation initiative announced at the Paris conference.
*They support a successful G-20 Summit in Hangzhou this year, including strong climate and clean energy results, and encouraged the G-20 countries to be constructive in international cooperation on energy and climate change.
The Presidents also committed to taking concrete steps to implement the commitments they made in September 2015 – specifically to use public resources to finance and encourage the transition toward low-carbon technologies as a priority.
The press release concluded that the joint efforts between “China and the United States on climate change will serve as an enduring legacy of the partnership between our two countries.”
