Achieving global climate goals by 2050: Pathways to a 1.5° C future

April 26, 2023

This is the second edition of ClimateWorks' report on achieving global climate goals by 2050, following an inaugural 2020 report. For the first time, it includes an additional Ensemble of scenarios, which helps capture a more nuanced story about the linkages and trade-offs inherent in any given climate change mitigation strategy. Philanthropy and the broader climate solutions community can use the findings highlighted in the report as a resource to better understand how emissions reduction opportunities are distributed across sectors and geographies — and the transformations needed to achieve 1.5° C targets

Foundation funding for climate change mitigation: Europe spotlight

October 12, 2021

This is the most comprehensive report ever published on philanthropic climate change mitigation funding in and from Europe. It draws on 6,230 grants, worth €1.8 billion ($2 billion), from 136 foundations across Europe.The funding trends analysed in this report will enable foundations to make improved data-driven decisions about future investments, civil society organizations to better understand where funding is going, and policymakers to arm themselves with data about gaps in public funding that the philanthropic sector might be filling, or what it may be missing.

Funding trends: Climate change mitigation philanthropy

September 24, 2020

The world is facing a global crisis on an unprecedented scale. If the international community does not take transformative action to combat climate change, people and communities will face increasingly dire consequences from rising global temperatures — extreme storms, droughts and wildfires, mass species extinction, new infectious diseases, famines, civil strife, and more. Some of these impacts are already becoming commonplace in the daily news.However, ClimateWorks' latest research reveals that less than 2% of global philanthropic giving is dedicated to climate change mitigation — not nearly enough to meet the scale of the global challenge. Although the field of climate change mitigation philanthropy has been developing rapidly, it clearly has immense room for rapid and sustained growth.This Funding Trends brief leverages one-of-a-kind data on funding flows to produce key insights for climate change mitigation philanthropy and includes a breakdown of foundation funding for climate change mitigation across regions and sectors.
