We are fostering ideas to help fight the damaging effects of climate change.

Through these innovations and initiatives, we are investigating opportunities to slow — or maybe even reverse — those damaging effects, especially among the most vulnerable.

Defining Climate Tech

The term “climate tech” intentionally casts a wide net. It includes both physical and digital technologies. It includes technologies that reduce greenhouse gas emissions, technologies that remove emissions from the atmosphere, and technologies that enable adaptation to an altered climate.
