Biden’s strong commitment on climate change

President Joe Biden’s first months in the White House fully reflect his administration’s commitment to pursuing a transition to a low carbon economy. Biden has rejoined the Paris Agreement and recently announced a highly ambitious target to reduce emissions by half by 2030.1 In a landmark proposal announced in March, Biden’s $2.25 trillion American Jobs Plan,2 or Infrastructure Plan, broadly addresses his campaign pledges on climate change, even going further than expected in some areas. While there may be compromises around the final numbers to get the plan through Congress, it aims to boost clean energy generation and US-made electric vehicles (EVs), as well as modest support for renovations of buildings. At the heart of this approach is the Infrastructure Bill – a $2 trillion wish-list of measures to get the US on the path to net-zero emissions by 2050. The infrastructure proposal includes support for low carbon technologies and core targets relating to climate change.
