Climate & Energy

Reducing global warming is necessary to protect our health, communities, and economy against profound impacts.  Doing so requires aggressively tackling all pollutants that cause warming.  The Pisces Foundation’s climate & energy program is pursuing a strategy that will contribute to this goal:  cutting emission of black carbon, methane, HFCs, and ground-level ozone.  Collectively referred to as short-lived climate pollutants, each is a powerful contributor to global warming.

There are practical and proven ways to reduce these pollutants.  In addition, slashing emissions can prevent millions of premature deaths every year and improve crop yields.  The result of a campaign to curtail short-lived climate pollutants:  a reduction in the rate of warming, improved human health and ecosystem protection, and momentum in the overall effort to transition to a clean energy future.

Our recent Energy and Climate grants include:

  • Institute for Governance and Sustainable Development

    To accelerate a global phasedown of HFCs.
  • International Council for Clean Transportation

    To reduce black carbon pollution in key countries.
  • Energy Foundation

    To reduce short-lived climate pollutants in the U.S. and China.
  • Clean Air Task Force

    To reduce methane emissions and educate the public.
  • Center for Climate and Energy Solutions

    To spur action to phasedown the use of HFCs.
  • European Climate Foundation

    To further promote environmental performance in the shipping industry.
