The U.S. return to the Paris climate accord under President Joe Biden is “crucial” for repairing the multilateral system and underpinning the effort to combat climate change, according to the joint head of Germany’s Greens party.

Greens’ co-leader Annalena Baerbock, who could have a senior government role after September’s election, said Biden’s commitment to reverse America’s withdrawal from the agreement shows that Europe and the U.S. can work “very closely together” to reduce harmful emissions.
