The USCA was a reaction to President Donald Trump's announcement the U.S. would withdraw from the December 2015 Paris climate agreement because the restrictions would hurt America's economy without improving the environment.
USCA members pledge to implement policies advancing the goals of the Paris climate agreement, in part by reducing greenhouse gas emissions by at least 26 to 28 pct below 2005 levels by 2025. USCA members are also required to accelerate new and existing policies to reduce CO2 and promote clean energy deployment at the state and federal level.
