Full Time

About the Organization

ClimateWorks is a worldwide network of philanthropic and nongovernmental organizations whose mission is to support public policies that prevent dangerous climate change and catalyze sustainable global prosperity. Our goal is to inspire the adoption of policies that limit annual global greenhouse gas emissions to 44 billion metric tons by the year 2020 (25% below projections) and to 35 billion metric tons by the year 2030 (50% below projections) in order to ensure that global average temperatures do not increase by more than 2° centigrade—a threshold that most climate scientists describe as a dangerous tipping point. To achieve this objective, ClimateWorks promotes smart government policies that reduce reliance on carbon-intensive energy sources; rapidly deploy clean, efficient energy technologies and low-carbon infrastructure; and reduce the rate of deforestation in the world’s largest, most threatened tropical forests. We prioritize this work in the nations, regions, and economic sectors responsible for most greenhouse gas emissions, thus increasing our chances of success.

The ClimateWorks Network includes thirteen institutions:

• The ClimateWorks Foundation manages the Network, conducts in-depth policy research and economic analyses, raises needed funds, and sets funding priorities based on the most urgent challenges and largest opportunities for reducing emissions.

• 6 Regional Climate Foundations manage grant portfolios in priority regions, focusing on local and regional politics and campaign-style advocacy. They draw on deep, in-country political expertise and understanding of local conditions to lay the groundwork for policy victories.

• 7 Best Practice Networks put world-class knowledge to work in the sectors responsible for most greenhouse gas emissions. The policy analysts, technology experts, and former regulators who staff Best Practice Networks are deeply embedded in the policymaking process and know how to work with decision makers to ensure policy efficacy.

This collection of organizations composes the ClimateWorks Network and works to pursue coordinated strategies and to share information and tools to increase effectiveness. For more information on ClimateWorks, visit www.climateworks.org.
