Hawai‘i is a small state with big ambitions and big actions–especially when it comes to addressing climate change. We are #StillIn the Paris Agreement. As a member of the U.S. Climate Alliance, we believe that smart, coordinated State action can ensure that the U.S. continues to contribute to the global effort to address climate change.

In response to the Paris Agreement, Hawai‘i created the Hawai`i Climate Change Mitigation and Adaptation Commission (aka State Climate Commission). The Commission’s work focuses on ground transportation emissions reduction and adaptation to sea level rise.
