The International Climate Program's mission is to support global efforts to halt climate change while ensuring clean energy access for all.
About Our Program
Working with domestic and international coalition partners, we seek to accomplish our mission by:
- Redirecting international financial institution energy lending away from fossil fuels towards decentralized clean energy projects.
- Supporting partner organizations around the world in their campaigns to reduce the use of coal.
- Supporting social entrepreneurs seeking innovative approaches to delivering clean energy access to the billions around the world without access to sustainable energy sources.
- Ensuring that international financial institution lending, as well as future funds under the United Nations green climate fund, apply robust social and environmental safeguards.
Moving Public Finance Beyond Coal, to a Clean Energy Future: We work in coalitions with global partners to ensure that international streams of public finance are directed away from fossil fuels towards support for transformational climate action and delivering clean energy access for all. In addition to this policy work we strongly support the brave activists from around the world whose daily struggle bears witness to the ongoing tragedy created by the dirty, dangerous, and outdated coal industry. Their valiant struggle comes at a time when clean energy is being rapidly deployed without sacrificing communities or ecosystems.
