Insights to drive effective climate philanthropy
From new funders to those with years of experience, we equip philanthropy and the climate community with insights to build and execute transformative climate strategies.

Build and evolve your climate strategy

For over a decade, we have worked alongside a global network of funders, grantees, researchers, and other partners to build a unique set of data that sheds light on how philanthropy can have the greatest possible impact on alleviating the climate crisis. By applying our experience, expertise, and analysis to this dataset on climate and philanthropy, we help individuals and organizations work with the speed and scale that the climate crisis requires.

Together, our intelligence adds up to be the most robust and curated knowledge set for and about climate philanthropy in the world, helping funders to craft, execute, and evaluate and adjust their climate strategies.

Climate insights

We provide strategic intelligence for philanthropy, built on open-source modeling covering global climate change data, mitigation opportunities, progress indicators, and future emissions projections. We convene stakeholders, hold webinars, and produce and fund reports and other products that help the climate community understand the issues, pinpoint opportunities to drive impact, and take action.

Examples include:

Philanthropic insights

Our work includes timely data, analysis, and reports on funding flows, grantee landscapes, and climate insights to build knowledge, identify investment priorities, and support effective deployment of funding. By combining data and analysis on both climate and philanthropy, these insights help climate funders channel resources toward key gaps and opportunities.

Examples include:

Custom analysis

We provide expert research, reports, presentations, and briefings in response to requests from our funding partners. We deliver resources tailored to specific needs and interests, in order to help funders craft and execute focused strategies that advance their goals.

Our custom analysis supports philanthropy by:

  • Bringing new funders up to speed
  • Supporting board meetings and investment decision-making
  • Providing segmented data and analysis to support strategy development and execution

Our network

Our team works alongside a network of technical and expert institutions worldwide that play a critical role in advancing research, developing strategies, supporting policy development, and engaging the private sector and other crucial actors. By collaborating with these partners, we are able to build out the datasets that drive our analysis, help identify significant opportunities to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and help to track progress and adapt our climate change mitigation efforts along the way.
