About Us

Empowering individuals and decisions-makers to act on climate change

Climate change is the single biggest global threat to our way of life. It is already impacting our lives. Everyday. Everywhere.

Information on climate change is difficult to understand, misreported and usually questioned. It is perceived as a complex, uncertain, global and long-term issue for most people.

As a result, action to address climate change has been delayed and neglected. Concern about the threat of climate change has not translated into action to address it.

Information is critical to increase public understanding and action.

This is why we analyze, research, produce and disseminate accessible information based on science to engage everyone, everywhere to act on climate change.


Our mission is to increase awareness that encourages actions through researching, analyzing, producing and disseminating information.

Our Distinct Approach to Climate Action

Our distinct approach to climate action is based on:

Accesible Information

We create accessible information on climate change based on science. We analyze, use and combine available scientific research and data.

Climate Scientists

We partner with top climate scientists from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change who validate our research and information.

Global Reach

Because the media is the most effective channel to reach the public, we disseminate our messages globally through the media to promote climate action.
