The Climate Institute was established in 2005, inspired by a clear understanding that the climate challenge demands a whole-of-society response.
By seeking a majority of our support through private philanthropy
, the organisation maintains the necessary independence and freedom to provide truthful analysis and an objective perspective unencumbered by vested interests.
Our vision is for a resilient Australia, prospering in a zero-carbon global economy, participating fully and fairly in international climate change solutions.
We produce and communicate research in three key areas
: international accountability, economic transformation and societal leadership.
Climate change is the most formidable global challenge of our era, requiring solutions at every scale. To be most effective, we employ a collaborative approach
across business, community and government.
Articulating a response that is both positive and pragmatic is also a core objective of our work. Increasingly, we are using interactive tools
, videos, social media, and most recently the work of our Creative Fellow
, photographer Michael Hall, to bring a human face to the climate change story.
