The ClimateWorks Network focuses its efforts in the geographic regions that have the greatest potential to reduce greenhouse gas emissions: China, the United States, the European Union, India, and Latin America.
The Network organizations that work in these nations are called Regional Climate Foundations. These foundations are staffed and led by local political and policy veterans who work with key stakeholders in defined geographic areas to:
- Advance national and regional policy objectives to reduce emissions
- Foster collaboration between organizations
- Promote cohesive strategies across organizations
- Maximize results and philanthropic return on investment
The Regional Climate Foundations are the largest recipients of ClimateWorks’ support, and they manage the bulk of the Network’s grants.

In China, we focus on increasing energy efficiency and renewable energy. We target both national policy and regional implementation. Learn more about our partner in China, the China Sustainable Energy Program.
In the European Union, we promote climate and energy policies that greatly reduce Europe’s greenhouse gas emissions and help Europe play an even stronger international leadership role in mitigating climate change. Learn more about our partner in the European Union, the European Climate Foundation.
In India, we are committed to helping build a sustainable and secure future for India’s citizens by supporting policies that promote energy efficiency, sustainable transportation, and renewable energy. Learn more about our partner in India, the Shakti Sustainable Energy Foundation.
In the United States, we work to advance new energy technologies that enable economic growth with dramatically less pollution. Learn more about our partner in the United States, the Energy Foundation.
In Latin America, we provide officials with analytical support to help them create sector-specific policies that grow the economy while reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
