Joe Biden has made it a presidential objective, and henceforth a bulwark against inflation: the country must have reduced its net greenhouse gas emissions by 50% by 2030 compared to 2005 emissions.

Under the scrutiny of the Carbon Action Tracker initiative, whose work was presented this week in NYC, the US roadmap is less promising.

The policies and measures taken by the country do not live up to the target and undermine its credibility.  

The city of New York is organising its climate convention and thus offering a global showcase to its participants.

The IRA and the colossal budget dedicated to greening the American economy by 2030 have created a huge call for projects. If the week’s busy schedule is anything to go by, big brands, start-ups, NGOs and strategists have responded. For Positivéco, this was an opportunity to put the American green economic policy and the attractiveness of its market at the heart of our attention. 

Joe Biden has made it a presidential objective, and henceforth a bulwark against inflation: the country must have reduced its net greenhouse gas emissions by 50% by 2030 compared to 2005 emissions. He registered it with the United Nations when the country joined the Paris Climate Agreement in 2021.

According to US projections, the emissions curve would have bent permanently. Annual emissions would fall.

US Greenhouse Gas Projections 2030

Under the scrutiny of the Carbon Action Tracker initiative, whose work was presented this week in NYC, the US roadmap is less promising. There would have been a pause in emissions in 2020 due to Covid, but emissions would have increased in 2021 by 6% compared to 2020.  The policies and measures taken by the country do not live up to the target and undermine its credibility.  

The global thermometer continues to rise.

Only 8-9% of global emissions would be covered by a satisfactory mitigation target. For an almost complete review of national and regional commitments, go to the NGO’s website.
