Strategies
Overview
This grant would support the European Climate Foundation’s transportation program. In the next year, the European Climate Foundation and its grantees would work to ensure that the European Parliament sets the right direction for more advanced carbon emissions standards for cars and trucks, speed up the deployment of electric vehicles, and better monitor shipping emissions. The grant would also support ECF’s work to encourage the E.U. to set standards to reduce the carbon intensity of fossil fuels, and ensure sustainability of bio-fuels. Both standards for vehicles and fuels have the potential to set a global example of decarbonization of transportation.

Grants to this Grantee
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. (Substrategy: Philanthropic Capacity)
for defending the European transition beyond petroleum  
The European Climate Foundation’s transport program is a critical partner to our zero-emissions transportation strategy. Using a multifaceted approach that advances vehicle standards and charging infrastructure, highlighting the benefits to jobs and health, the foundation’s grantees will work to electrify all road transport on the continent by 2050. (Substrategy: Electrification)
for climate communications collaborations and operations  

This grant will support the European Climate Foundation’s international strategic communications work, in an effort to ensure informed and factual public discourse on the impacts of climate change and possible mitigation and solutions. Working with a wide range of partners, it plans to develop and disseminate messages to build support for clean air and clean energy. (Substrategy: Climate Communications)
