A public-private partnership for people & the planet

Engaging nontraditional partners, with emphasis on our youth and underserved communities, in climate innovation and climate action.

Engaging communities, youth, organizations, and industry in designing and implementing equitable and inclusive climate solutions.


The Climate Equity Collaborative™ (CEC) is a public-private partnership that engages nontraditional partners in climate innovation and climate action. Our aim is to engage at the system-level by centering our initiatives on climate education, children’s environmental health, environmental justice, and to construct more on-ramps to the global climate conversation by building impactful partnerships.

While the problems stemming from climate inequity are vast, the CEC is focused on opportunities for children (K-12), college-aged and pre-career youth from underserved groups which are not sufficiently engaged and historically under-resourced in the climate conversation, STEM learning, public health decision-making, and job opportunities.

We assist our corporate partners to build programs which address net-zero commitments; future workforce needs; environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG); and equity in our changing global climate.
