About the Center for Climate and Energy Solutions:

C2ES is the successor to the Pew Center on Global Climate Change, founded in 1998 with the support of the Pew Charitable Trusts, and widely recognized in the United States and abroad as a credible, independent force for pragmatic climate action. Named the world’s top environmental think tank in 2011 by the University of Pennsylvania, the nonpartisan Pew Center was a trusted source of information and analysis, a bridge between diverse interests, and a leader in catalyzing constructive business engagement.

Launched in November 2011, C2ES builds on this strong foundation, with the Pew Center’s founder, Eileen Claussen, and its senior team continuing to lead the effort. Principal activities include: providing timely, impartial information and analysis on the scientific, economic, technological and policy dimensions of climate and energy challenges; convening business, environmentalists, other stakeholders and policymakers to develop consensus solutions; working with members of its Business Environmental Leadership Council and others to take action on the ground; and working with policymakers and stakeholders to promote pragmatic, effective policies at the state, national and international levels.
