Support The Climate Group and fund a brighter future
Our vision is a vibrant low carbon economy which ensures a thriving planet and prosperity for all.
Our mission is to inspire and convince leaders at the top of government, business and society to reduce carbon emissions now and accelerate the transition to a low carbon economy.
The Climate Group is a registered UK charity (cc no. 1102909), a publicly supported 501(c)(3) in the USA (Federal Employer Identification Number 43-2073566) and a not-for-profit in Hong Kong.
How we're funded
The Climate Group celebrated its ninth birthday in 2013. We were extremely fortunate to benefit from a US$17 million, five year unrestricted grant from HSBC in five of the first eight years, allowing us to make a significant impact in our early years and grow our operations. This partnership concluded in 2011. Now, as a charity with no regular government funding and to ensure our continued independence, we now require financial support from like-minded donors who appreciate the scale of the challenge ahead of us and the time-limited nature of an effective response.
Philanthropic supporters give more than just financial support. We value their leadership and view of the world, which is often different to our corporate and government partners. We believe they have an important contribution to make at a strategic level and can help direct our work. As such, we will continue to invite philanthropic supporters to join our International Leadership Council or to become Clean Revolution Ambassadors where their leadership can help drive forward our vision.
Our current philanthropic supporters include the Tellus Mater Foundation, Dutch Postcode Lottery, Zennström Philanthropies, Esmée Fairbairn Foundation and The Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation.
The Climate Group is careful with its resources. We focus effort where we can achieve the greatest impact in return for any investment of time and money. But now is the moment for tackling climate change and year-on-year our expenditure is rising.
