Overview
The communications component of this grant will fund efforts to enact the recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosure (TCFD.) These recommendations would require companies to disclose their financial risks from climate change, including liabilities that could be incurred from their CO2 emissions. The efforts focus on getting individual companies to adopt the recommendations and work with standard-setting bodies to make them mandatory. The finance disclosure part of the grant will fund public education and communications capacity in India around climate impacts and mitigation. It supports efforts to develop communications capacities with Indian NGOs working in the climate and energy arena.

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.
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.
