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 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.
for an industrial deep decarbonization strategy  
This is a grant will support to development and promulgation of a global industrial sector strategy. The strategy will focus on the top emitting industries including steel, concrete and chemicals. It will address these sub sectors in the United States, the European Union and China. Additionally, the grant will support the seeding of technical support in NGO's in the three regions. The program will engage other foundations in this effort. The expectation is this program will expand in 2020.
