About Us

The Global Climate Collaborative is the working title for a new international organisation seeking to make a distinct and important contribution to tackling climate change — the greatest challenge facing humanity.

Our analysis: to overcome the challenge of climate change, we need to generate the political and societal will to take the specific actions needed to rapidly reduce emissions from different sectors.

While an incredible array of organisations is building pressure to achieve this and winning many battles, we believe we need to deepen trust and collaboration among these organisations in order to accelerate progress and increase our collective impact. We aim to make a significant contribution to this.

We will work behind the scenes with the organisations driving the climate transition. Working as a strategic convenor, we will bring together civil society, business and new champions for climate action. We will enable high-impact international and national coalitions to secure decisive action by governments to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, likely focusing on two to four issues annually. We will not focus on the international negotiating process.

In addition to convening campaigns this organisation also aims to deliver wider and lasting benefits to the climate struggle, by enhancing connections and learning on how we achieve our shared goals.

We are currently at a formative stage, listening and building relationships with key players, designing the organisation, and developing short-term plans.

The organisation will be governed by a small Advisory Board of individuals playing leadership roles in the climate community, and personally committed to enhancing collaboration.

The GCC is currently housed under fiscal sponsor Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors, who will be responsible for issuing contracts.
