GOAL: To ensure that energy is produced and used cleanly and efficiently, with limited impacts on human health and the environment, and that global average temperatures increase less than 2°C to avoid the worst effects of climate change.
The Hewlett Foundation’s Environment Program is committed to reducing these emissions to avoid the most severe effects of climate change. We pursue our goal with strategies in the following areas:
- Clean Power: Increase renewable energy and energy efficiency while reducing fossil fuel development and use for electricity generation.
- Clean transportation: Increase fuel efficiency and access to transit, biking and walking options, while constraining the growth of high-carbon fossil fuels for transportation.
- Building broad support: Engage diverse members of the public.
