Climate Law and Policy Project
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 policies that focus all resources on achieving reductions, rather than on making emissions more expensive.
CLPP’s mission is to use its legal and policy expertise to help formulate and advocate environmentally, socially, and scientifically sound policies to reduce emissions and protect communities around the world, especially those that find themselves on climate change’s front line without the means to protect themselves.
CLPP is essentially a think tank with a bit of an advocacy bent – trying to think up and/or promote the policies that will actually work to help address the climate crisis.
