Welcome to the Climate Initiatives Platform (CIP), an online portal for collecting, sharing and tracking information on international cooperative climate initiatives driven by non-state actors such as businesses and cities, often with support from national states. Currently, the collection consists of more than 200 initiatives.

If you have questions or would like to add a new climate initiative to the platform, then please send them by email to us at:

If you want to suggest a new initiative, there are several options. Either use the email-address given above, or click on 'Suggest' above. To register as a user, and thus be granted access to suggest changes to one's initiatives and avoid a cumbersome identification verification process, click on 'Join'.

To browse the initiatives, click on 'Search' for a complete list where one also can narrow the search. To learn more about CIP, the applied criteria and definitions, as well as literature on the impact of ICIs in general, click on 'About'. You can download your search into an Excel sheet, but the Internet Explorer does not work for this.

We have added 3 new transport Initiatives: EV100, Below50, and Transformative Urban Mobility Initiative (TUMI).

Success Stories
Walmart, the world’s largest company by revenue, saved nearly $1 billion in a single year and avoided emitting almost 650,000 tonnes of CO2, as part of its science-based target.

On 3 May 2016, Minister Ibrahim Baylan launched Belysningsutmaningen, Sweden’s commitment to the Global Lighting Challenge. Together with public and private actors, the Swedish government now races to reduce by half the electricity demand for lighting by 2020 and challenges other countries to follow suit.
On October 15, 2016, the world reached an agreement to phase-down hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs). It is one of the most significant actions governments have ever taken to protect the climate. HFCs are highly potent greenhouse gases that have a global warming potential 1000’s of times that of carbon dioxide (CO2).
Green Freight Meeting.jpg
With support from the Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC), the Northern Corridor Transit and Transport Coordination Authority (NCTTCA) in partnership with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) is developing its five year (2017-2021) Green Freight Programme which is aimed at supporting a number of initiatives intended to reducing fuel consumption and carbon emissions in the Northern Corridor Member States (Burundi, DR Congo, Kenya, Rwanda, South Sudan and Uganda).
Airport Carbon picture.jpg
The total number of airports participating in this programme is now 156, representing a 25% growth in participation compared to the previous year. These airports cover almost a third (31.3%) of world air passenger traffic.
OGMP picture.jpg
The six original Oil & Gas Methane Partnership (OGMP) partner companies (Eni, Pemex, PTT, Southwestern, Statoil and Total) submitted their first OGMP annual reports. three companies also managed to implement several identified mitigation opportunities, resulting in some 14,000 tons of methane emissions avoided in 2015.
Fish story.png
A new and easy-to-assemble fish smoking and drying technology pioneered by FAO has been developed to improve to energy efficiency in rural communities by using 50 percent less wood fuel compared to traditional open-type smoking rafts. .

Apple, Bank of America, and General Motors were among the new companies that joined RE100 during Climate Week NYC 2016 – taking the total number of members to 81, and helping to create demand for more than 100TWh renewable electricity RE100 won the 'Pioneer' award at the British Renewable Energy Awards 2016 - recognized for its efforts to accelerate the corporate take up of renewable energy through commitments to renewable power and creating a pathway that others can follow.
New Global Fuel Economy Initiative (GFEI) Goals for Mauritius and United Arab Emirates.
Refrigerants, Naturally! is a success story in itself. The unique collaboration of direct market competitors and particularly the support from UNEP and Greenpeace, make Refrigerants, Naturally! as unique and successful as they are.
Science Based Targets.jpg
Overall science based targets has caught up with the language of various stakeholders working on climate issues, and given guidance and methods on how companies can set a GHG target aligned with climate science.
UITP’s Public Transport Declaration on Climate Leadership (UITP) demonstrates the public transport sector’s commitment to tackling climate change.

Seven countries in Central America are currently finalizing the adoption of technical regulations to establish minimum energy-efficiency standards and labelling for lighting products, motors, refrigerators and air conditioners.
Some visitors can now be upgraded to users

If you are a focal point or secretariat for an International Collaborative Initiative (ICI) in our platform, you can now apply for a password to get access to your page. You can then update all the content of your page. Click on the "Register" button on the top and submit the registration form. We will then look at it and if it is ok, give you access to you own page, and only that page.

The Paris Agreement is within reach!

The Compact of States and Regions - 2016 Disclosure Report has been published at:

The report reveals, that the vision set out in the Paris Agreement is within reach. Delivering on all disclosed 2020 targets in time would result in savings that put these governments on track to stay below the critical warming threshold of 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels.

Excel downloads possible, and new criteria added!

You can now download an ICI page or your search results in an Excel sheet (only for Google Chrome at the moment). The search function has been expanded with five criteria which you can use to restrict your search. The criteria are the following: 1) Are not expired, 2) Not only in one country, 3) Not only mentioned in a declaration, 4) Not only have national states as participators, 5) Do not have a secretariat or focal point

Related-initiatives option added!

In the top of the page for some initiatives in the Climate Initiative Platform's website you will now see if the initiative have 1) Sub-initiatives, 2) a Parent-initiative, or 3) a Related initiative.

New Website Design launched!

The design of the Climate Initiative Platform's website has dramatically changed! The purpose is to increase the appeal as well as the user friendliness of the website. There are edits here and there that are continuously addressed.

Our Climate Initiative Platform is now a data provider to the UNFCCC NAZCA Platform.

All the 77 NAZCA Initiatives are now included in our platform, and we are now a data provider about these 77 Cooperative Initiatives to UNFCCC NAZCA, the Non-state Actor Zone for Climate Action.
