Personal Commitment to the Paris Agreement1
By making this commitment, I agree to support the Paris Agreement as a “non-party stakeholder.”2
I agree to join the global effort in “holding the increase in the global average temperature to well below 2°C above pre-industrial levels and pursuing efforts to limit the temperature increase to 1.5°C.”
I agree to publicly declare and track progress toward my own personal greenhouse gas reduction goal, using my nation's Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) as a minimum target for my own efforts.3
To the extent that I am able, I will actively support and contribute to other efforts detailed in the Paris Agreement; including, but not limited to: increasing the ambition of my reduction targets over time [Article 4]; enhancing carbon sinks [Article 5]; and contributing to adaptation funds and efforts of my choosing [Article 7].
Recognizing that as a “non-party stakeholder” I am particularly equipped to support Article 12 of the Paris Agreement, I will do my best “to enhance climate change education, training, public awareness, public participation and public access to information.”
 The Paris Agreement is a 25-page document downloadable here: https://unfccc.int/files/essential_background/convention/application/pdf/english_paris_agreement.pdf.
 The term “non-party stakeholder” refers to sub-national constituents with an unofficial interest in the Paris Agreement. This includes states, municipalities, corporations and, by implication, smaller stakeholders such as individuals and families.
 The American NDC is to reduce GHG emissions by 26-28% by 2025 from a 2005 baseline. Carbon Brief maintains a nation-by-nation carbon tracker: https://www.carbonbrief.org/paris-2015-tracking-country-climate-pledges
