We are powered by people

We have entered a critical decade in our efforts to combat the disastrous effects of climate change.

People around the world have been taking to the streets & airwaves, asking for governments, companies and their communities to take action. Citizens and municipalities are searching for solutions, and investors want to have real impact with their dollars.
