What we do
The Climate Group is an award-winning, international non-profit with offices in Greater China, North America, India and Europe. Our goal is to help leaders transition to a prosperous low carbon economy, driven by the rapid scale-up of clean and renewable energy.
We work in partnership with the world’s most influential business, state, regional, finance and civil society leaders. For over a decade we have worked to demonstrate the economic and business case for the low carbon economy, and create the political conditions necessary for a strong global framework that addresses climate risks and maximizes climate opportunities.
The global climate deal which has been struck at the Paris COP represents a new beginning: the chance to accelerate our low carbon future. We are working with governments, businesses and investors to implement the Paris Agreement, holding them to account where appropriate through reporting mechanisms, and ensuring we bend the emissions curve downwards to secure a thriving, clean economy for all.
Our vision is a prosperous, low carbon future for all.
Our mission is to inspire and convince leaders in government, business and society to reduce carbon emissions now and accelerate the transition to a low carbon economy.
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.
