UD joins universities, governors, businesses in commitment to continue reducing emissions

The University of Delaware joined more than 180 universities, nine governors, 125 city leaders and more than 900 businesses and investors in signing an open letter June 5 declaring a commitment to continue supporting climate action to meet the 2015 Paris Climate Agreement.

The grassroots coalition, “We Are Still In,” is designed to send a strong signal to the international community about the continued commitment of the U.S. to take action on climate change. It comes in response to President Donald Trump’s announcement June 1 to withdraw the United States from the Paris Climate Agreement.
