In response to the Paris Agreement, Hawaiʻi created the Hawaiʻi Climate Change Mitigation and Adaptation Commission (Commission). The Commission’s priorities are captured in Hawaiʻi’s climate change goals and targets, which can be achieved through high-impact actions. As a member of the U.S. Climate Alliance, we believe that smart, coordinated, data-driven State action can ensure that the U.S. continues to contribute to the global effort to address climate change.
