Grants to this Grantee
for the independent Global Stocktake  
The independent Global Stocktake is a research and communications project driven by think tanks and civil society to raise the aspirations of parties to the Paris agreement. It is a rigorous analytical project to highlight the differences between what countries have pledged; what they are actually doing; and what needs to be done to meet the goal of keeping global temperature increases well below two degrees, as set under the Paris treaty. This project will precede the official UNFCCC Global Stocktake (GST), and is designed to help keep that process honest and ambitious. The GST will be one input when countries submit their national determined commitments to meet the Paris goals in 2025. (Substrategy: Multilateral)
for general operating support  
ClimateWorks Foundation works to address climate change and advance clean energy and a prosperous economy. They 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 are increasing clean, renewable energy sources; promoting energy efficiency; supporting work on clean transportation; and reducing deforestation and emissions of highly potent greenhouse gases. ClimateWorks will also continue to increase philanthropic capacity in the field. (Substrategy: Philanthropic Capacity)
for the COP26 zero-emissions vehicle campaign  
The Conference of the Parties 26 (COP26), hosted by the United Kingdom in November 2021, affords the global community the opportunity to secure strong commitments toward the global transition to zero-emission road transport. This grant will fund a coalition effort to work with key governments, companies, and investors in the run-up to COP26 to pledge strong commitments to move toward 100% zero-emissions road transport as rapidly as possible.
