About Us

Climate Strategies is a not-for-profit organisation working with an international network of senior climate change policy experts to bridge the gap between research and policy.  It provides world-class, independent policy and economic research input to national, European and international climate policy. Created in 2006, it has achieved the status of trusted knowledge broker amongst stakeholders of different backgrounds, as it investigates innovative topics delivering concrete and applicable policy options.

Climate Strategies is supported by broad spectrum of national governments, businesses and foundations but its research is conducted in accordance with a Charter of Independence.

Membership of Climate Strategies is by invitation from the Board. It is open to senior researchers, usually based in universities or research institutes, who through their work have made significant, demonstrable and constructive contributions to climate change and energy policy. Many have led or otherwise been closely engaged with Climate Strategies research projects.

Climate Strategies provides members with a platform to interact with each other and with external stakeholders through joint projects, reports, communication activities and the Climate Policy journal. Members are also encouraged to review each other’s work and research.
