Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama has welcomed the United States net-zero pledge aimed at slashing carbon emissions by 50-52% by the year 2030.
Bainimarama tweeted that the world can’t stop at emissions as adaptation demands American leadership, innovation, ambition and finance on a scale that atones for the last four wasted years.
Attorney-General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum also tweeted as the US is back in the climate campaign and has the chance to do better, be more committed and more innovative than ever.

The USA’s net-zero pledge is a serious win for humanity and the planet.
We can’t stop at emissions.
The inescapable half of the climate equation–– adaptation––demands American leadership, innovation, ambition, and finance on a scale that atones for the last four wasted years.
