End Climate Pollution. The United States must reverse its disproportionate role in creating the climate crisis, by no longer propping up the fossil fuel industry, rapidly zeroing out greenhouse gas emissions and helping other countries do the same.
Globalize Climate Justice. The United States and all members of APEC must commit to climate justice for communities of color and take action to end the disproportionate impact climate change has on communities of color in their own nations and globally.
Stop Trade Attacks on Climate Action. The United States and all members of APEC must end corporate-driven trade agreements that greenwash, weaken and delay the transition to a just and clean economy, and must commit to a Climate Peace Clause immediately ending trade attacks on climate action.

This November in San Francisco, the United States and thirteen other countries plan to announce the conclusion of large parts of the Indo-Pacific Economic Framework (IPEF) trade agreement at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum.
Poised to set binding rules governing approximately 40% of the global economy, and also to become the template for subsequent trade pacts, IPEF will have major impacts on climate policy, worker rights and more for decades to come.
In spite of this, climate activists and working people have not been represented in the closed door negotiating process. Meanwhile, corporate lobbyists have been working hard to get what they want, enjoying almost unlimited access to US trade officials and negotiators. As it stands, IPEF will do nothing to address the climate catastrophe we are facing. APEC leaders are clearly not taking the climate crisis seriously, and are merely opting to promote more policies that greenwash and hide devastatingly irresponsible backdoor deals with multinational corporations.
We represent a group of organizations and activists concerned about greenwashing and the lack of climate justice in APEC talks as well as IPEF. We are organizing to ensure that large numbers of working people, climate activists and others are shining a spotlight on the San Francisco APEC meetings to ensure that corporate lobbyists don’t get their way as they discuss agreements on women, the economy and the upcoming Indo-Pacific Economic Framework (IPEF).
