Grants to this Grantee
for Carbon Dioxide Removal Initiative  
The Carbon Dioxide Removal Fund is a three-year collaborative project of ClimateWorks, the Climate and Land Use Alliance, the Packard Foundation, and the Spitzer Foundation. The Fund will seed policy research, convenings, thought leadership, and communications outreach around natural and technological carbon dioxide removal. It will also support other foundations with analysis and by working to align efforts in the U.S., China, and Europe.
for general operating support  
ClimateWorks Foundation works to address climate change and advance clean energy and a prosperous economy. They will pursue a global approach to reducing greenhouse gas emissions aimed at energy sectors and regions with high or fast-growing levels of greenhouse gas pollution. Among their priorities will be increasing clean, renewable energy sources; energy efficiency; and clean transportation, while reducing deforestation and emissions of highly potent greenhouse gases. ClimateWorks will also continue to increase philanthropic capacity in the field.
for the Climate and Land Use Alliance  
This grant will support the Climate and Land Use Alliance at ClimateWorks Foundation. CLUA’s mission is to realize the potential of forested and agricultural landscapes to mitigate climate change, benefit people, and protect the environment, primarily in Indonesia, Brazil, and Mesoamerica. Land use — from deforestation, land degradation, and the draining and burning of tropical peatlands to fertilizer application and rice and cattle production — is responsible for about 25 percent of human-related greenhouse gas emissions. More effective land use protects the climate by reducing carbon emissions and preserving nature’s vital carbon sinks.
