LCV Statement on COP28 Climate Commitments

Dec 13, 2023

Washington, D.C. — In response to the close of the 28th Conference of the Parties (COP) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) issued the following statement from Vice President of Government Affairs Sara Chieffo: 

“The commitments made for the first time ever to divert from fossil fuels and triple renewable energy on a global scale is an important step in the right direction, but the work is far from over to tackle the climate crisis and environmental injustice at the scale science and impacted communities here and abroad require. The Biden-Harris administration must continue their leadership on climate action at home and continue to implement bold regulatory and executive actions such as EPA’s recently announced methane rule, which will significantly reduce a climate super pollutant and help protect the health of communities who live next to oil and gas operations. The outsized presence of Big Polluters at COP also emphasizes the urgency to elect pro-environment, pro-democracy champions to double down on our efforts for clean air, clean water, and a clean energy future for all.”
