Overview
This grant will fund the European Climate Foundation’s (ECF) primary mitigation programs. ECF works across EU institutions, including the European Commission, in key individual states and at the corporate level. In 2017 ECF will prioritize efforts to maintain — and, if possible, increase – Europe’s commitment to international climate leadership; this will be particularly critical as U.S. engagement declines. At the European Commission level, ECF will work to implement efficiency requirements, and promote fuel efficiency standards for cars and trucks. At the nation state level, ECF will focus on the clean energy transition in Poland, Germany, the U.K., and France. In the industrial sector, ECF has developed a cement program organized around zero emissions.

for the International Climate Politics Hub  
The European Climate Foundation plays an international leadership role in climate change mitigation. The International Climate Policy Hub will support efforts leading up to the 26th UNFCCC’s Conference of the Parties to be held in Glasgow in 2020. The Hub will support key countries in demonstrating progress, reaffirming commitments, and showing collective ambition on the global scale in order to align with the goals of the Paris Agreement. The Hub will also work to ensure NDC commitments are accompanied by Paris-compliant finance agendas, and will support activities such as workshopping best practices, and building peer-to-peer exchanges between national governments, cities, regions, investors, and businesses.

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.
