The Global Climate Action Summit was held Sept. 12-14 in San Francisco, CA drawing vast commitments from governments and businesses to promote a low-carbon transportation future. The goal of the summit was to “join forces to step up climate action ahead of 2020—the year when global greenhouse gases need to peak and fall sharply thereafter to avoid the worst impacts of climate change.”
The meeting included leaders from businesses, cities, states, regions, and investors. The outcomes were a range of commitments in five specific challenge areas: Health Energy Systems, Inclusive Economic Growth, Sustainable Communities, Land and Ocean Stewardship, and Transformative Climate Investments.
