Works with the mission of accelerating action on climate change, bringing the level of global warming to below 2 degree centigrade and helping busines Read moreses and governments achieve zero net greenhouse emissions. To achieve its objectives, it focuses on collaborating with governments and businesses worldwide to initiate and speed up climate action with a global impact.

The EP100 initiative is focused on sharing of best practices on enhancing energy productivity. The EV100 initiative aims to promote faster transition to electric vehicles to achieve a massive cut-down in greenhouse gas emissions. The LED-Scale Up initiative is working with the aim of promoting the use of LED lights for the purpose of street lighting across the world. Its Under2 Coalition drive is the result of a collaboration between more than 200 national and regional governments with a commitment to limit the global rise in temperature to less than 2 degree centigrade. The coalition works through three channels to enforce accelerated climate action. The 2050 Pathways initiative is focused on devising long-term and medium-term plans of reducing emissions in compliance with the Paris Climate Agreement. The Policy Action initiative aims to devise carbon reduction policies and to replicate and publicize their success with a view to achieve eventual decarbonization. The Transparency initiative aims to support governments in developing expertise and systems to deal with climate change, by way of accurate assessments, progress tracking and policy monitoring. In the past, it has undertaken and completed multiple projects focusing on reduction of global emissions, clean energy, implementation of low-carbon solutions, climate finance, creating a Net Positive impact, recycling, brand leadership on climate change and electric cars emitting significantly lesser amount of Carbon Dioxide.
