Guided by our values

Our values — collaboration, insight, resolve, and being catalytic — are at the core of how we will work to achieve our mission.

COLLABORATION. We recognize that we can achieve more by working together than by working alone.

INSIGHT. Our work is guided by rigorous analysis based on the latest science to identify and act on key opportunities.

RESOLVE. We are dedicated to achieving our mission in the face of major challenges and hurdles.

CATALYTIC. We empower people and organizations to take meaningful climate action today.

Our twice-per-year staff retreats include time for collaborating on org-wide work topics, skits, and a healthy dose of social time.

Committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion

We believe diversity as an asset essential to accomplishing our work. Our commitment to inclusion across race and gender/gender identity, as well as age, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, job skills, education, and geographic makeup is a part of who we are.

We know that climate change disproportionately affects people living in developing countries and fully appreciate the importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion in our work. 

Our staff have a global outlook:

  • 35 percent of ClimateWorks’ staff were born outside the U.S.
  • 28 percent have a native language other than English
  • 60 percent are proficient in at least one language other than English
