Mission Statement

Our mission is to inspire and convince leaders in government, business and society to reduce carbon emissions now and advance the transition to a net zero emissions economy.

The damage from climate change is accelerating. Climate change is happening faster, more dramatically, and with more impact on everyday life than anyone could have predicted. What we hoped wouldn't happen until 2030 is happening
right now.

A swift, massive scale up of clean energy and technology, leveraging markets to transform how energy is created and used, is the only way to safeguard humanity.

And, influencing those with the power to make this happen is what we do. The Climate Group has developed unrivaled expertise in building and managing coalitions of climate leaders to create tipping points for change.
