background

CLPP is a non-profit organization established in 2007 to develop and promote sound and safe policies to slow, stop, and ultimately reverse the buildup of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere and ensure that vulnerable communities are protected from climate impacts that cannot be avoided.

CLPP's work focuses on domestic and international climate policy. In particular, CLPP concentrates on "action policies" -- market-based policies that direct all expenditures by emitters towards driving actions that cost-effectively achieve emission reductions. As the name suggests, action policies focus on spurring action to reduce emissions. Given the urgency of the climate challenge, what is needed now is action.
