About The Climate Center
The Climate Center, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, works to deliver speed and scale greenhouse gas reductions, starting in California. Founded in 2001, The Climate Center played a key role in the tremendous growth of Community Choice Agencies (CCAs). CCAs grew from two to 20 over the past six years and now provide 88% clean electricity to over 11 million Californians.

The Climate Center has launched a bold, science-based campaign, Climate-Safe California, to accelerate equitable climate policy timelines in California, catalyzing other states, our nation, and countries around the world to greater action for a climate-safe future.

Our goal is that California, the world’s fifth-largest economy, moves up its climate policy timelines by 15 years: doubling emissions cuts and starting drawdown to achieve net-negative emissions (sequestration greater than emissions) by 2030. Climate-Safe California policies and programs are guided by these key principles: they must (1) be based on the latest science, (2) ensure a just transition for workers, their families, and their communities, that are dependent on fossil fuel industries, and (3) ensure that lower-income communities and communities of color are no longer disproportionately harmed by the production and use of fossil fuels, and have equitable access to climate-friendly solutions.
