John Kerry Stepping Down As U.S. Climate Envoy

Under Kerry, the United States joined a COP26 global agreement.

John Kerry will step down from his role as the U.S. climate envoy as he prepares to leave the Biden administration to join President Joe Biden‘s re-election campaign.

Kerry is leaving the position after three years but a source says the 80-year-old will still attend the World Economic Forum in January and is expected to attend the Munich Security Conference in February.

Axios first reported Kerry was stepping down and intends to join the Biden re-election campaign.

Kerry is working with White House Chief of Staff Jeff Zients on transitioning out of the administration.

Under Kerry, the United States joined a COP26 global agreement and focused on scaling up private-sector funding for climate action. However, more could not be done under Kerry’s watch due to Republican control in the House of Representatives.
