The Climate Registry and the Climate Action Reserve will host a bipartisan delegation of governors, senior government officials, business leaders, academics and NGOs at the 25th Conference of the Parties (COP25) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in Santiago, Chile. We have led joint delegations to COP for over a decade, beginning with COP13 in Bali in 2007.
Subnational and private sector leadership is critical if we are to meet the goals of the Paris Agreement and curb the worst consequences of climate change. The TCR-Reserve joint delegation provides a platform for North American subnational jurisdictions, nonprofits, and private sector groups to showcase their climate policies, and enables learning and exchange opportunities between our delegates and those from other countries and regions.
Participating in COP provides an excellent opportunity to learn, collaborate, network, and build relationships with climate leaders and activists throughout the world.

“Climate change leads to more drought, fires and floods, threatens our health and wellbeing, and poses huge risks to our economy. We want to show the rest of the world that we can reduce emissions, make our state more climate resilient, and make our economy more prosperous and equitable. We will continue to work with businesses and other governments to carry on the fight against climate change.”
- Mary Nichols, Chair, California Air Resources Board
“Bipartisan environmental leadership, fueled by science and driven by urgency, is happening in Maryland and other states to deliver results when the Federal Government isn’t. Governor Larry Hogan is committed to reducing greenhouse gases, growing a cleaner and greener economy, and instilling a culture of preparedness and resiliency. The world also needs to hear that America’s Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative, a thriving, bipartisan coalition of 10 states, is gaining ground and showing other states how to cut carbon pollution in half, while generating billions of dollars for cleaner energy and healthier communities.”
- Ben Grumbles, Secretary of the Environment, State of Maryland
