Description The Climate Group's mission is to accelerate climate action. We specialize in bold, catalytic and high-impact climate and energy initiatives with the world’s leading businesses and state and regional governments. Our vision is a world of prosperous ‘net-zero’ emission economies and thriving, sustainable societies.

Our mission is to accelerate the shift to a prosperous and thriving ‘net-zero’ future for all. We do this by communicating to inform, convening to connect. 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.

Objectives A world of no more than 1.5°C of global warming and greater prosperity for all.

How we do it: We bring together powerful networks of businesses and governments, which shift global markets and policies, towards this goal. We act as a catalyst to take innovation and solutions to scale. And we use the power of communication to build ambition and pace. We focus on the greatest global opportunities for change.

Activities The Climate Group works with businesses and states and regional governments around the world.
