Do any international agreements or regulations on climate matters apply in your country? The United States is a party to the Paris Agreement. The US signed the Paris Agreement in April 2016 and later ratified it, committing, alongside nearly 200 other countries, to limit global warming to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels. The US also submitted an initial commitment to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to 26 per cent to 28 per cent below 2005 levels by 2025 as its first 'Intended Nationally Determined Contribution' (NDC) under the Paris Agreement. In June 2017, the Trump administration announced that the US would pull out of the Paris Agreement, and the US did briefly withdraw from the Paris Agreement on 4 November 2020. However, following the election of President Joe Biden, the US announced that it would re-join the Paris Agreement. President Biden used executive authority when he entered office in January 2021 to re-enter the Agreement, which took effect 19 February 2021. In April, 2021, the US submitted a new NDC, committing to reduce economy-wide GHG emissions
