Rejoining the Paris Agreement is an unequivocal commitment to climate action for the future of our communities, country, and world. The Pacific Coast Collaborative (PCC) welcomes this decision and looks forward to working with the Biden-Harris Administration (and other agreement signatories) to create a job-rich, innovative, and fair economy that benefits all residents, while leading the world in fighting climate change.

The Pacific Coast of North America represents the world’s fifth-largest economy, with over 55 million people, and a combined GDP of $3 trillion. Since the PCC was formed in 2013, California, Oregon, Washington, British Columbia, and the cities of Los Angeles, Oakland, San Francisco, Portland, Seattle, and Vancouver have been working together to raise ambition for climate action, increase resilience, and build the low-carbon economy of the future.
