Climate Policy Initiative

Climate Policy Initiative (CPI) works to improve the most important energy and land use policies around the world, with a particular focus on finance. We support decision makers through in-depth analysis on what works and what does not.

We work in places that provide the most potential for policy impact, including Brazil, China, Europe, India, Indonesia, and the United States. Our work helps nations grow while addressing increasingly scarce resources and climate risk. This is a complex challenge in which policy plays a crucial role.

We work to improve the most important energy and land use policies and business practices around the world, with a particular focus on finance. Our analysts and advisors support decision makers through in-depth analysis on what works and what does not.

Our services include advisory and convening, analysis and assessments, and design and implementation of new solutions. In land use, we aim to help nations achieve low-carbon economic growth by identifying and assessing opportunities to improve land use efficiency and increase productivity of land while simultaneously protecting forests’ vital carbon stocks.
