Overview
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.

Grants to this Grantee
for general operating support  
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.
for the Transport Programme  
This grant is to support ECF’s launch of the Zero Emission Heavy Duty Vehicles in Europe campaign in 2019. The campaign will leverage the promising advances in zero-emission vehicle technology and the launch of several battery-electric commercial vehicle models this year in the European market. The campaign’s efforts will target key E.U. countries as well as the E.C., given widespread concerns over poor air quality from diesel-vehicle exhaust and the recent successful passage of the continent’s first fuel efficiency standards for heavy duty vehicles.
for the 2050 Pathways Platform  
The 2050 Pathways Platform was launched in 2016 following the adoption of the Paris Agreement and its call on countries to elaborate long-term low-emissions development strategies. The 2050 Platform’s main intent is to create greater ambition in the short and medium term, through the development and elaboration of these long-term strategies coherent with Paris’ net-zero emissions objective. With this in mind, the Platform was created with a group of front-runner countries, cities, regions, and private companies to form a coalition around the strategic importance of long-term planning.
