The Clean Air Task Force focuses on mitigating CO2 by promoting carbon capture and storage policies, low-carbon energy innovation, renewable energy, and nuclear power. The Task Force also focuses on high-potency pollutants like methane and black carbon. Its priorities in 2017 are to increase incentives for carbon capture at the federal and state level, reform the Nuclear Regulatory Commission’s nuclear innovation processes, and foster business-to-business partnerships in the U.S. and China. The Task Force’s approach to the climate-driven energy transition focuses on the deep decarbonization necessary to achieve a 2-degree goal.

Grants to this Grantee
for scoping effective implementation of new legislation
This grant to the Clean Air Task Force will enable a network of organizations to develop a plan to support the responsible build-out of low- and zero-carbon technologies, consistent with the federal government’s decarbonization goals to reduce emissions by 50 percent by 2030 and to reach net zero emissions by 2050. The plan will consider how to document and communicate the ways these projects benefit communities, such as the creation of high-paying local jobs and strengthening community tax bases.

for general operating support
Clean Air Task Force (CATF) is a global nonprofit organization working to safeguard against the worst impacts of climate change by catalyzing the rapid development and deployment of low-carbon energy and other climate-protecting technologies. CATF embraces a pragmatic and non-ideological approach in its advocacy for accelerated commercialization of a range of low-carbon technologies, including carbon capture and storage, hydrogen, renewable energy, and nuclear power.
