The ClimateWorks Foundation emerged from a study commissioned by six foundations: the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, the David and Lucile Packard Foundation, the Energy Foundation, the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, the Joyce Foundation, and the Oak Foundation. The 2007 study “Design to Win: Philanthropy’s Role in the Fight Against Global Warming” (pdf), sought to answer a critical question: What would it take to achieve a real “win” in the battle against climate change? The authors of Design to Win interviewed more than 150 of the world’s leading experts on energy, climate change, and forests to identify the top priorities for avoiding dangerous climate change. Using cost curves and other research, the Design to Win analysts ranked investments by their potential to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and their ability to prevent the “lock-in” of long-lived, carbon-intensive infrastructure.
Oak Foundation commits its resources to address issues of global social and environmental concern, particularly those that have a major impact on the lives of the disadvantaged.

The Climate Institute was established in 2005, funded through private philanthropy. It is an independent, non-partisan research and communications organisation focused on highlighting the impacts of climate change and finding solutions to how to tackle them, whether at the macro-economic level, or via particular sector initiatives. The Climate Institute helped found the AODP through its Climate Change Investment Initiative in 2007-08. TCI has continued its support, having housed the AODP until its relocation to London in 2014. Today The Climate Institute serves as the Australian agent of the AODP, alongside its research and communication working to catalyse and drive the change and innovation needed for a low pollution economy and culture.
Client Earth is a group of activist lawyers that works to protect the environment through advocacy, litigation and research. Legal action, whether in advocacy or in cases before courts and administrative bodies, is built on solid law and science.
HOW TO SUPPORT US
In order for the AODP to remain independent and non-partisan it is vital that we are supported through donations. We are seeking private and philanthropic donations to continue the important work that we are doing. Our aim is for the project to reach financial independence within three years by developing unique research, market reports, consultancy and a range of industry-related tools.
There are varying sponsorship opportunities and packages available with a wide range of benefits. For more information please contact our Business Development Manager.
