About

The Climate Group works internationally with leading businesses, states and regions to deliver a world of net zero greenhouse gas emissions and greater prosperity for all. 

We are at the forefront of ambitious climate action. Our focus is on collaborative programs with corporate and government partners that deliver impact on a global scale. 

The Climate Group stimulates action by businesses, states and regions, bringing them together to develop and implement the policies that make change happen. We also communicate their achievements to secure global public acceptance of, and even greater ambition for, a prosperous, net-zero future for all.

The Climate Group is an international non-profit with offices in Beijing, London, New Delhi and New York.

  • OUR PHILOSOPHY

    Our philosophy is simple: we believe that tackling climate change is an opportunity – an opportunity to build a smarter, better more prosperous world for all.

    To make this happen, all our work is guided by four key insights:

    Climate change is an economic issue not just an environmental concern. Government and business leaders are sensitive to moral imperatives, but they respond best to clear messages and proposals that combine economic, social and environmental benefits. Leaders also respond better to approaches that enrol and involve people. So we present solutions professionally and in business terms, making the economic case for their implementation.

    A small community of leaders can have a big influence. When leaders lead, others follow, so we work with sector leading companies and forward thinking governments to create tipping points for transformative change. We know that by building a critical mass of leaders that demonstrate the feasibility, affordability and profitability of bold climate action, the majority will follow.

    Clear communication of practical success stories drives action. Information about the science and economics of climate change is extensive, occasionally overwhelming, and often inaccessible to decision and opinion makers. Much can be achieved by presenting case studies and evidence of success in new and compelling ways, and communicating a clear vision for change that is positive and optimistic.

    Partnerships are more effective than organisations acting alone. Our active network of governments, business and other partners enables new, innovative partnerships to generate original, bold and exciting climate and clean energy actions. We look to partner like-minded organisations to ensure that the total of our efforts is greater than the sum of their parts.

  • OUR VALUES

    We are:

    Positive

    We believe that tackling climate change is an opportunity: an opportunity to build a smarter, better more prosperous world for all. We are optimistic, solutions-oriented and dynamic.

    Catalytic

    We seek to make well-designed strategic interventions that, by catalyzing leadership and unlocking specific barriers, drive transformational change.

    Bold

    Recognizing the urgency of addressing climate change and the need for bold and ambitious action, we are prepared to take risks to achieve our goals and accept that by not playing safe we may not always succeed.

    Results-driven

    We’re judged by our results, not by our plans. We’re committed to seeking impacts, but we’re flexible enough to adapt our approach to changing circumstances in order to achieve our strategic priorities.

    Honest

    We approach our role with humility and transparency. We support the work of leaders and we give credit where credit is due.

    Collaborative

    As a small organization we can’t achieve our goals alone, so we value partnership and actively seek out collaboration that will maximize our impact. We see other organizations that share our goals as allies and, where possible, look to support their work. We work together, we’re respectful of different cultures and we seek out different approaches, recognizing that there is strength in diversity.

    Politically neutral

    We actively and equally support all individuals, organizations and governments that demonstrate leadership on climate change and show no preference on the basis of their nationality and political affiliation.

    Committed to excellence

    We recognize our responsibility to our supporters, partners and the wider world. From the rigor of our research, to the presentation of our reports, to the quality of our events, we aspire to excellence in everything we do. We expect these values to be reflected in the way we carry out our work and guide the decisions we make.
