Overview
This grant to the World Resources Institute will fund the continuation of the Track II climate dialogue between senior nongovernmental advisors and former statesmen from the U.S. and China. These talks provide the opportunity to raise and address issues in less-formal forums and build trust for the time when climate policy is back on the agenda of the U.S. and China. The project will work with actors from across the political spectrum with the aim of building ambition on both sides. This grant will support convening and analysis.

Grants to this Grantee
for the SBTi-Finance project  
This scope of work is to further grow the Science Based Targets Initiative, specifically for financial institutions (SBTi Finance). SBTi Finance builds on attributional accounting based on the Greenhouse Gas Protocol’s Corporate Value Chain (Scope 3) Standard. SBTi Finance is a framework for financial institutions to set targets that are aligned with climate scenarios, and that enable an ex-post evaluation of financial institutions’ contribution to real-economy emissions reductions in relation to the Paris Agreement’s mitigation goal. The framework includes a set of methods that can be used to set targets, criteria that SBTi will use to assess and validate targets submitted to the initiative, and implementation guidance.
