This grant will allow ClimateWorks to develop a strategy for energy innovation and atmospheric carbon removal. ClimateWorks will chart the U.S. energy innovation landscape and develop policies to promote broad energy innovation policy in the power, transport, building, and industry sectors. They will also develop strategies for the field and philanthropy around atmospheric carbon removal, looking at land use and technological methods.

Grants to this Grantee
for the global industrial decarbonization program
This grant will support ClimateWorks Foundation’s Industry Program’s efforts to reduce industrial GHG emissions to zero in high-income countries by 2050 and in middle- and lower-income countries by 2060. To achieve this goal, all the key components of the transition must be fully commercialized and ready to be rapidly scaled up by 2030, including the technologies and the social and economic systems to support clean production, demand reduction, and the transition away from fossil-based production practices. This grant will enable ClimateWorks to work with partners globally to set the policy, commercial, technological, and social foundations for deep decarbonization from 2030, through initial steps to reduce industrial GHG emissions during the 2020s.

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)
