Our Approach

Climate change is our greatest planetary threat, affecting all species and ecosystems. Governments must meet the Paris Agreement’s temperature target to ensure the well-being of our planet and its people for generations to come. Achieving a just and sustainable future means bridging the work of researchers at the forefront of understanding the complex impacts of this crisis with those who are able to enact change.

Climate Strategies works at the science-policy interface, advancing climate policy through meaningful interactions between decision-makers and researchers across Europe and internationally. We are an international, not-for-profit research network with an expansive network of world-leading researchers as members.

Since 2006 we have developed world leading experience of informing climate and energy policy, and are internationally known for our independence and outstanding quality of work, which is safeguarded by our Charter of Independence.

Knowledge is the key to tackling the climate challenge. Here at Climate Strategies, we work to ensure that the best research is shared across all levels – from workers, to researchers, to policy makers – to enhance collective intelligence in the fight against climate change.
