  • Leadership for a Clean Revolution

    We bring together and provide a platform for some of the world’s leading voices from business, government and civil society. They articulate a powerful, shared vision of a prosperous low carbon future. And they set out the steps needed to create a political and economic ‘tipping point’ around climate policy and the transition to a low carbon economy. As a leadership organization, we are at the forefront of the journey toward a clean revolution.

  • Off-Grid Business Models

    We are carrying out a major study on sustainable, clean energy and off-grid business models in rural India, supported by the Goldman Sachs Foundation. It focuses on evaluating financial, social and environmental returns on clean energy investments, in order to boost private sector confidence and mobilize investment capital in this space.

  • TUV Switch Asia

    Financing Energy and Environmental Solutions – TUV Switch Asia, promotes sustainable consumption and production among small and medium-sized enterprises and consumer groups in Asia. We’re helping increase access to green credit, implementing more energy-efficient production systems, and developing risk-sharing mechanisms between government and financial institutions.

  • LED Street Lighting India

    Light emitting diodes (LEDs) are proven to save a huge amount of energy from street lighting. But because high initial costs act as a barrier to adoption, we’re developing scale-up mechanisms and finance models to accelerate LED up-take. LEDs will reduce electricity consumption from public lighting, save money, cut associated GHG emissions and help city governments achieve major reductions in their carbon footprint.

  • Compact of States & Regions

    We bring together all sub-national government groups from around the world in a unified effort to cut emissions and support national and international climate ambition. In partnership with other networks, the Compact of States & Regions provides a single source of information on sub-national emissions targets.

  • Joint Emissions Reporting

    CDP and The Climate Group are working together on piloting a global emissions reporting program for States & Regions. By developing a common system, sub-national governments can deliver transparent, tangible and targeted emission reductions.

  • Policy Innovation Briefings

    We produce regular Policy Innovation Briefings which give a detailed analysis of the latest developments in the low carbon sector where States & Regions can have the biggest impact.

  • States & Regions Climate Policy Working Groups

    States & Regions Working Groups focus on issues that are critical to sub-national governments’ low carbon growth policies, such as developing climate adaptation strategies and clean technology innovation

  • States & Regions

    State and regional governments have an exciting and important role to play in the transition to a low carbon future. The United Nations Development Program estimates that 50‐80% of actions required to implement a global deal happen at the sub-national level of government which has important competencies in the areas of generation, supply and distribution of electricity, the regulation of the built environment, waste management, transport and land‐use planning.

  • RE100

    By 2020, 100 of the world’s largest companies will have committed to 100% renewable power. Convened by The Climate Group and in partnership with CDP, RE100 will raise awareness of the benefits for going ‘100% renewable’. The initiative will celebrate the success of companies on their journey to being 100% renewable and will collaborate with others to determine the best approaches for achieving the final goal.

  • LED Lighting

    We're working to transform how we light our world. Lighting accounts for nearly 6% of global CO2 greenhouse gas emissions, or 1,900 million tons of CO2 per year—which is the equivalent of CO2 emissions from 70% of the world’s passenger vehicles. We can make a considerable dent in carbon emissions if we make lighting more energy efficient.

  • SMART 2020

    Our SMART 2020 report showed ICT could cut global emissions 15% by 2020, illustrating the big role that smart meters, smart grids, smart buildings and cities have to play in the Clean Revolution.
