Overview
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.

Grants to this Grantee
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.
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.
