Gov. Schwarzenegger Announces First-of-its-Kind Climate Action Coalition at GGCS 3

At the conclusion of the Governors’ Global Climate Summit 3 (GGCS 3), Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger joined several prominent leaders from around the world to announce a first-of-its-kind, innovative subnational public-private alliance that will work toward climate change solutions and building the global green economy: R20 — Regions of Climate Action. Composed of subnational governments and private and nongovernment partners, R20 is a global coalition committed to fast tracking the development of clean technologies, climate resilient projects and green investment, and influencing national and international policies.

“We can’t afford to wait for national and international movement. Action is needed now, and action is what we’re taking with R20,” said Governor Schwarzenegger. “The role of subnational governments is more important than ever, and California has shown that state and regional governments can institute policies that will grow the green economy, create jobs and clean our environment. With this unprecedented level of cooperation and collaboration, R20 will continue this leadership around the world and will help influence national and international action.”
