We know that 2020 will be another landmark year in our climate story. Climate is affecting the daily lives of an ever-greater number of people across the globe. There are new movements that are calling on local and national governments, industry, and civil society to make climate action central in their thinking and planning. National governments are expected to make new commitments by 2021 to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions further, faster, based on the COP process. We want philanthropy to take as strong a lead as governments are being called to do, to make a bold statement indicating that all of us can, and need to, do more.
We believe that raising at least $1 billion in new philanthropic funds and investments for climate action will have meaningful impact.
Please tell us whether you pledge to gift, grant or invest funds – in addition to what is in your annual plan – to help address climate change.

To make climate philanthropy more tangible, accessible and actionable, the Climate Pledge promoters have begun gathering a discrete set of investable existing and emerging solutions to reduce global heating. These have been vetted by trusted partners.
