The Climate Group is an award-winning, international non-profit with offices in North America, India and Europe. Founded in 2004, we were the world’s first NGO dedicated to transforming the narrative around climate change from one of threat to one of opportunity. Our mission is to accelerate climate action. Our goal is a world of no more than 1.5°C global warming and greater prosperity for all, without delay. To achieve this, we bring together powerful networks of business and governments that shift global markets and policies. We are a catalyst for innovation and scaling solutions. We use the power of communications to build ambition and pace, focusing on the greatest global opportunities for change.
