The European Climate Foundation has been the ClimateWorks Foundation’s primary regranter for climate mitigation in the European Union and has been a center of advocacy innovation since Johannes Meier became the executive director. Over the next three years, the Foundation will focus on expanding the European Union’s climate ambitions through the development and implementation of the their 2030 framework. They will work to expand their efforts to create a continent-wide clean electricity system, institute a 70 grams-per-liter fuel efficiency standard for vehicles, and accelerate the drive to electrify the transportation system. In addition, they will work to implement these policies in key member states including Poland, France, and the U.K.

for general operating support  
The European Climate Foundation (ECF) was established in early 2008 as a major philanthropic initiative to help Europe foster the development of a low-carbon society and play an even stronger international leadership role in mitigating climate change. ECF advances policy in the areas of energy, transportation, buildings, low-carbon finance, industry, and energy efficiency. The organization works to develop policy at the local, national, and European Union level. They also support international efforts to mitigate carbon emissions through the United Nations and G20.
