Clinton Climate Initiative

Together with public and private sector partners, we're proving that measures to fight climate change can also grow economies.
Building on President Clinton’s longstanding commitment to the environment, the Clinton Climate Initiative (CCI) implements programs that create and advance solutions to the root causes of climate change – while also helping to reduce our reliance on oil, saving money for individuals and governments, creating jobs, and growing economies. CCI, in partnership with the C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group (C40), focuses on helping large cities reduce their carbon emissions. Other programs aim to increase energy efficiency through building retrofits; to increase access to clean energy technology and deploy it at the government, corporate, and homeowner levels; and to reverse deforestation by preserving and regrowing forests.
Fight Climate Change and Poverty with Trees of Hope
Through our Trees of Hope program, 2,000 Malawian farmers have already planted more than 2 million trees, sequestering more than 200,000 tons of CO2.
You can support these farmers – and their reforestation work – by purchasing the carbon credits they generate. Help us offset 92,550 tons of carbon.
$25 helps to offset 2.5 tons of CO2 emissions

CCI operates at the nexus of business, politics, and environmental groups, where there is tremendous opportunity for bridging understanding. A large part of CCI’s work is aimed at helping national and municipal governments turn pledges to reduce carbon emissions into action through replicable and scalable projects that can be tailored to local conditions. This approach serves several important functions, including demonstrating how targets can be met in practice, informing policy decisions, and compressing the timeframe of achieving real emissions reductions.

Across all of its programs, CCI uses a holistic approach to address the major sources of greenhouse gas emissions and the people, policies, and practices that impact them.
