    Who are PACE Partners?
 
Amid this summer’s highs and lows, local government and business leaders have reaffirmed their commitment to the Paris Climate Agreement in light of the federal government’s promised withdrawal. Some have independent resolutions, while others have declared their commitment through We Are Still In, an open letter to the international community and parties to the Paris Agreement from U.S. state, local, and business leaders that support action on climate change.
We are still in
 
Business leaders are stepping forward. At least 25 companies in Boulder alone (including many Partners for a Clean Environment (PACE) Partners) have signed on to the letter, which is still open for signing at wearestillin.com.
 
The Boulder County Board of County Commissioners issued a written resolution, and the accompanying presentation highlights some new fascinating data about economic costs that Boulder County faces due to climate change impacts (full web stream video; starts at 10 minutes, 15 seconds).
 
The City Of Boulder reaffirmed its climate commitments through Climate Mayors, a network working towards binding commitments to greenhouse gas emissions reductions. The City of Boulder also signed on to We Are Still In. The City of Longmont, which adopted its Sustainability Plan in November, also appears on We Are Still In, as does the Town of Lyons, whose Environmental Sustainability Action Plan was already in the works before the 2013 flooding that devastated that community and deeply affected Boulder County. The City of Louisville's City Council advanced its commitment to a healthy and sustainable community by voting in July of 2017 to adopt Resolution 34-2017 in support of the Paris Climate Agreement. The City of Lafayette passed a Climate Bill of Rights ordinance in March of 2017. The Town of Nederland is a signatory to the 2007-06 U.S. Mayors’ Climate Protection Agreement.
