Climate Change

In communities across the globe, our programs are proving that we can confront the debilitating effects of climate change in a way that makes sense for governments, businesses, and economies. The Clinton Foundation is committed to addressing climate change and energy transition using a systems approach. From making strides in energy efficiency through innovative business practices to a tree-planting program that generates income for farmers in Malawi, our work has reduced global greenhouse gas emissions by tens of thousands of tons per year while also creating local jobs and boosting economies.

More About Our Work on Climate Change

Our planet's future depends on the way we produce and consume energy today. Most climate scientists agree that we must dramatically reduce greenhouse gas emissions or face devastating consequences; already, rising temperatures and changing weather patterns are disrupting natural and economic systems and exacerbating intense poverty and health pandemics. Yet we are only just beginning to recognize that the answer to how we protect the environment is inextricably tied to how we power our economies.

By targeting the root causes of climate change, we can develop solutions to help change he course of our planet’s future. Communities that depend on forests can be engaged in conserving them. Small islands can be empowered to transition from imported diesel fuel to readily available renewable sources of power. Businesses in America and abroad can improve the energy use of buildings and promote energy efficiency within their work force. And collectively, we can demonstrate that measures to protect our environment can also benefit our economies by saving money for governments and businesses and creating local jobs.
