Vision & Mission
Our vision is a prosperous low carbon future 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 vibrant low carbon economy.
What we do
The Climate Group is an award-winning, international non-profit. Our goal is a prosperous, low carbon future. We believe this will be achieved through a ‘clean revolution’: the rapid scale-up of low carbon energy and technology.
We work with corporate and government partners to develop climate finance mechanisms, business models which promote innovation, and supportive policy frameworks. We convene leaders, share hard evidence of successful low carbon growth, and pilot practical solutions which can be replicated worldwide.
Our theory of change
A small number of government and business leaders can have a major impact on climate change, because they are the ones who can create the economic, technological, social and political tipping points needed to build a low carbon future.
These leaders are prompted to act when there is clear evidence that low carbon leadership returns benefits to those who lead, as well as to wider society, and when they are inspired to do so by their peers. It is therefore critical to curate opportunities for such interactions between influential leaders, and to provide them with the evidence they need.
Social media can greatly accelerate the creation of tipping points, and directly connects leaders with powerful grassroots movements.
Climate change is an opportunity.
It’s an opportunity for a clean revolution that will create a low carbon world and a more prosperous life for everyone.
Driving the clean revolution will generate returns now and in the future for those who lead and those they touch; jobs, wealth, security and better quality of life.
We can make this a reality with the technologies and ideas we have today, but it will only happen with inspired leadership now in business and government.
