ClimateWorks Australia is an expert, independent adviser, acting as a bridge between research and action to enable new approaches and solutions that accelerate the transition to net zero emissions by 2050 across our region. It was co-founded in 2009 by The Myer Foundation and Monash University and works within the Monash Sustainable Development Institute.
Since launch, ClimateWorks has made significant progress, engaging key decision-makers from all tiers and sides of politics and business. Our collaborative, end-to-end approach to solutions that will deliver greatest impact is informed by a thorough understanding of the constraints of governments and the practical needs of business. This, combined with philanthropic funding and university ties, has earned the organisation an outstanding reputation as a genuine and impartial adviser.
In the pursuit of its mission, ClimateWorks looks for innovative opportunities to reduce emissions, analysing their potential then building an evidence-based case through a combination of robust analysis and research, and clear and targeted engagement. They support decision makers with tailored information and the tools they need, as well as work with key stakeholders to remove obstacles and help facilitate conditions that encourage and support the transition to a prosperous, net zero emissions future.
ClimateWorks Australia has innovated and led thinking around pathways to decarbonisation since 2009. The next 10 years must be the transformational decade, where we have to go bigger than we ever have before.
