E3G is an independent climate change think tank with a global outlook. We work on the frontier of the climate landscape, tackling the barriers and advancing the solutions to a safe climate. Our goal is to translate climate politics, economics and policies into action.
E3G builds broad-based coalitions to deliver a safe climate, working closely with like-minded partners in government, politics, civil society, science, the media, public interest foundations and elsewhere to leverage change.
Since our beginning in 2004, we have been driving action for climate safety. In this critical decade for action and adaptation in response to the climate crisis, transforming societies and economies will require using new strategies and capacities. While reports on solutions to climate change remain key to delivering climate safety, so does rapidly creating real solutions.
Our work is global in outlook. Political economy and governance underpin our efforts across six interconnected areas. The scope of our work is unified in its ability to leverage the biggest impacts.
A key theme across all E3G’s work in 2021 was to deliver a ‘green recovery’ from COVID-19. E3G worked to promote, shape and support diplomatic campaigns to deliver the following: coal moratoria, phase-out and financing; clean energy deals; Paris alignment for Multilateral Development Banks (MDBs); ending public fossil fuel financing; and private finance reform. The threads of all our work built up to COP26 in Glasgow at the end of the year.
