Climate Policy Initiatives

Carbon Dioxide Removal Initiative -

LTC is launching a new initiative to gain the inclusion of carbon dioxide removal, one of the major necessary components of a global climate solution, in U.S. climate policy. The initiative will promote carbon dioxide removal with community education, policy analysis and program design, and policy advocacy.

Carbon Tax Initiative -

In 2014, LTC launched a Carbon Tax Initiative, which seeks the adoption of an economy-wide, market-based approach to address the challenge of climate change and advance a clean-energy economy. Central to that objective is supporting policies that can boost the economy, job creation and innovation while cutting pollution. Consistent with our problem-solving orientation, we believe a carbon tax will allow leaders from across the political spectrum to work together to find a middle ground to address this most urgent challenge. The Initiative is funded by Linden Trust and a bipartisan group of businesspeople who have donated to Linden Trust.

Goals for the program are to (1) develop policy proposals based on the best research and analysis and (2) nurture a national conversation about economically sound approaches. The Carbon Tax Initiative supports organizations in line with these objectives.

Population(s) Served

This program’s goal is to foster the development of environmental markets in ways that can help solve some of the world’s most serious environmental problems. The program funds a small number of initiatives, each of which (1) addresses a globally important environmental problem that has not responded well to traditional approaches, (2) employs a market-based tool and has the potential to significantly advance the development of that tool, and (3) can benefit from LTC’s business expertise. LTC may seek to maximize support for the desired outcomes by (a) funding multiple organizations that are dedicated to those outcomes, (b) securing additional funders who will donate alongside or through us, and (c) contributing some of our own staff time as appropriate.

Population(s) Served

The goal of this program is to help save a small number of ecologically important landscapes that may be sustainable in all respects: ecologically, financially, institutionally, politically, and socially. Typically the places will be very large, relatively pristine or readily restorable, located in nations that have very good governance, accompanied by well-designed financial structures, and in the hands of well-managed institutions that will engage local support. In particular, we seek to support projects that advance the field of conservation finance. As in our Environmental Markets work, we may seek to maximize support for the desired outcomes by (a) funding multiple organizations that are dedicated to those outcomes, (b) securing additional funders who will donate alongside or through us, and (c) contributing some of our own staff time as appropriate. The approach employed in most of the conservation-finance projects we have supported, which we term “project finance for permanence,” is reviewed in a detailed report, related case studies, and journal article.

Population(s) Served

Under this program the Trust will provide financial support to a small number of very high-quality institutions whose missions are directly supportive of our own. The support will be unrestricted, or will substitute for unrestricted funds by meeting very high-priority requirements of the institutions.
