The Climate Group is an award-winning, international non-profit. Our goal is a prosperous, low carbon future. We believe this will be achieved through a ‘clean revolution’: the rapid scale-up of low carbon energy and technology. We work with corporate and government partners to develop climate finance mechanisms, business models which promote innovation, and supportive policy frameworks. We convene leaders, share hard evidence of successful low carbon growth, and pilot practical solutions which can be replicated worldwide.

Our vision is a prosperous low carbon future for all. Our mission is to inspire and convince leaders at the top of government, business and society to reduce carbon emissions now and accelerate the transition to a vibrant low carbon economy

A small number of government and business leaders can have a major impact on climate change, because they are the ones who can create the economic, technological, social and political tipping points needed to build a low carbon future. These leaders are prompted to act when there is clear evidence that low carbon leadership returns benefits to those who lead, as well as to wider society, and when they are inspired to do so by their peers. It is therefore critical to curate opportunities for such interactions between influential leaders, and to provide them with the evidence they need.

Climate change is an opportunity. It’s an opportunity for a clean revolution that will create a low carbon world and a more prosperous life for everyone.

The Climate Group is hosting Future of Energy events.
