Climate Initiative Mission

The Wellspring Climate Initiative seeks to avoid the worst impacts of climate change by dramatically reducing global greenhouse gas emissions and accelerating the transition to a clean energy future. Our investments will be aimed at decarbonizing the world economy as quickly as possible and will focus on the strategies and venues where philanthropy can have the highest impact. We will be active in multiple geographies based on opportunities for cost-effective mitigation. We believe that solving climate change requires the adoption of ambitious policy solutions that transform markets, advance clean technology and lead to large-scale change. The Climate Initiative is dedicated to building powerful coalitions needed to achieve these bold policy solutions.
