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.

Grants to this Grantee
for the Global Strategic Communications Council and the Philanthropy Task Force  
This grant will support the European Climate Foundation’s Philanthropy Task Force. This was inspired by French President Emmanuel Macron to catalyze both private donors and development agencies to support climate mitigation in Southeast Asia, clean energy innovation, global clean air campaigns, and efforts to protect land-based carbon sinks. The second part of the grant will support ECF’s Global Strategic Climate Communications program. This grant will fund the GSCC’s core program and its India program. The key focus in this grant period is to create narratives of climate ambition at key moments throughout the year, both at international and national levels, in order to help turn sectors and governments from a simple commitment to the Paris Agreement to implementing its measures in earnest.
for general operating support  
The European Climate Foundation (ECF) — a "foundation of foundations" — 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 to mitigate climate change. ECF supports the sustainable development of a low-carbon society in Europe through policy support in the areas of energy, transportation, buildings, low-carbon finance, industry, and energy efficiency. ECF also supports international efforts to mitigate carbon emissions at the United Nations and G20. They work to develop policy at the local, national, and European Union level.
