Overview
The European Climate Foundation — 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 in mitigating climate change. The ECF advances policy in the areas of energy, transportation, buildings, low-carbon finance, industry, and energy efficiency. They also support international efforts to mitigate carbon emissions through the United Nations and G20. The organization works to develop policy at the local, national, and European Union level.

Grants to this Grantee
for the sustainable finance program and climate finance strategic communications  
The European Climate Foundation (ECF) helps Europe foster the development of a low-carbon society and play an international leadership role in mitigating climate change. ECF seeks to accomplish two goals under this program: (a) accelerate changes to the way private capital is allocated in Europe towards climate change mitigation investments and (b) support strategic communications around the decarbonization of bank lending portfolios.
for the Global Strategic Communications Council's digital capacity and organizational effectiveness  
The European Climate Foundation’s Global Strategic Communications program supports a range of advocates and communications efforts promoting climate change and clean energy solutions globally through traditional and new media outreach. This grant will enable the program and network to better use social and digital media to share news and information on climate change to key audiences. It will enable them to hire digital staff and create visual, compelling content for digital and social media channels. The grant will also enable the program to conduct organizational management planning in the coming year.
for the carbon dioxide removal and carbon capture hub at the port of Rotterdam  
This project seeks to achieve buy-in from key European NGOs for an industrial decarbonization strategy that is built around carbon capture. The European Climate Foundation will work with stakeholders to develop a governing consensus for the deployment of carbon capture and the accompanying infrastructure. Key stakeholders will include major E.U. climate NGOs; representatives from the iron, steel, cement, and chemical industries; national governments; and labor unions.
