    2015 (Inactive Grant)

    Climate Solutions

    NEW YORK, NEW YORK — The Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) works to transform the way the world does business to prevent dangerous climate change and protect natural resources. The Carbon Pricing Leadership Coalition accelerates and aligns high-level momentum behind carbon pricing in the run-up to the Conference of the Parties of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change in Paris (December 2015) and lays the groundwork for ambitious implementation post-Paris, through high-level engagement and the development of carbon pricing scenarios. The project leverages the World Bank’s technical expertise and influence in finance ministries, and CDP’s and We Mean Business’s networks of companies and investors, to build a compelling narrative around effective carbon pricing implementation and to provide the business case for more companies and investors to use carbon pricing internally and eventually fully internalize the costs of carbon pollution.

The MacArthur Foundation awarded CDP North America $3,630,400 between 1978 and 2017.
