our mission

cut global carbon emissions at speed and scale—to secure a better future for all
The truth is known. And it is sobering: The climate is in crisis. The consequences of inaction are extreme, irreversible, are already being felt deeply. Reducing carbon emissions is critical, and it’s imperative that we act now. With time in short supply, we need not just good ideas, but powerful solutions with speed and scale. We must focus on the near-term policy decisions that will do the most to drive large-scale deployment of clean technologies.

Partnering with and supporting experienced on-the-ground organizations, Climate Imperative provides funding, technical support, and expertise to inform the most important climate policy decisions.

Today’s policy decisions are the difference between a livable and unlivable tomorrow. Our imperative is clear: We must shift to a sustainable future.
