Target as reflected in the U.S.-China Climate Leaders Declaration: 

  • Committed to 10% GHG reduction by 2020 (1990 baseline).
  • Committed to 80% GHG reduction by 2050 (2001 baseline).
  • Earlier this year, Governor Malloy issued an executive order establishing the Governor’s Council on Climate Change (GC3). Comprised of 15 members from state agencies, nonprofits, and the business community, the Council is responsible for establishing interim goals that, if met, will ensure the state achieves that 2050 target. The Council will also recommend policies, regulations and legislative actions to meet these targets.
