The Climate Challenge

climate change

India faces a complex challenge. It must reduce global greenhouse gas emissions and secure its economy and 1.4 billion people from climate extremes, while improving living standards.

There is growing momentum for collective action to tackle this challenge, yet available climate finance falls significantly short of what India needs.

Philanthropic capital serves as a catalyst in India's climate ecosystem.

It can inform priorities and champion initiatives to unlock and de-risk public and private finance.

We harness climate
philanthropy’s potential, using
a three-pronged approach.

We unlock philanthropic capital flows by advising philanthropists who are new to climate action or want to give differently.

We discover, design, and surface climate priorities that mitigate emissions and build resilience, aligned with India’s development pathways.

We build connective infrastructure to enable impactful funding through platforms or shared resources for the sector.
