Mayor's Press Office    312.744.3334

“I want to congratulate President Obama on the unprecedented announcement with Chinese President Xi Jinping to reduce carbon emissions from both countries. Climate change is a global challenge and this step by the world’s largest economies and emitters is a clear commitment to a stronger future for us all. We continue to work to reduce emissions across Chicago by moving away from coal, expanding transit and walkability, and increasing energy efficiency. The climate related work in our city and in communities across the United States will strengthen our country in the days and decades ahead.”
