US, Canada, and Mexico Announce Joint Clean Energy Plan

The United States, Canada, and Mexico have jointly committed to generating 50 percent of their energy from clean sources by 2025 and cutting short-lived pollutants, including reducing methane emissions from the oil and gas sector between 40 and 45 percent by 2025, cutting black carbon (soot) emissions and finding alternatives to hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs).

The following is a statement by Voces leader Carolina Herrera:

“The North American Leaders’ Summit proved that we can work across borders to address the global climate change crisis. This breakthrough commitment will enable the United States, Canada and Mexico to take significant steps to accelerate North America’s clean, low-carbon energy future. This trilateral pledge on clean energy is essential to cut harmful pollution over the long term. Meanwhile, the shared commitment to reduce energy-sector methane pollution is equally important to curb climate change right now. The Paris Agreement solidified a global commitment to address a problem that has no borders, and this pledge reinforces the urgency to tackle climate change together.”
