Our Mission

To accelerate the transition to sustainable communities through climate mitigation, adaptation planning, and effective climate policies.

Clean Air-Cool Planet works collaboratively with campuses, communities and corporations to pioneer and scale-up innovative solutions aimed at reducing carbon emissions and preparing for climate change. We also work to build support for environmentally effective and economically efficient national climate policies.

Our Programs

  • Sustainable Campuses: Our Campus Carbon Calculator™ – which is in use on more than 2,000 U.S. campuses – serves as the focus for our national program to support cutting edge actions by colleges and universities to control their carbon emissions and produce the next generation of environmental leaders.
  • Sustainable Communities: We work to empower towns and cities to address the energy and climate challenges they face by developing and supporting innovative approaches to reducing carbon emissions
  • Climate Preparedness and Adaptation: CA-CP is helping communities plan and prepare for the impacts of a changing climate.
  • Building Support for Effective Climate Polices: Our main priority is to build bi-partisan support for the development of economically and environmentally smart carbon-pricing policies. We also work to strengthen national policies on climate adaptation and Arctic warming.

CA-CP is a science-based, non-partisan, 501(c)3 non-profit with offices in Portsmouth,NH; New Canaan, CT; and Washington, DC.
