At CATF, we build momentum for solutions based on scientific evidence, intellectual integrity, and pragmatism. We know that the climate crisis is too complex a challenge, and the stakes are too high for us to limit the tools at our disposal. We challenge conventional wisdoms and explore every opportunity that offers promise, and we’ve done so for more than 25 years.


Did you know that more than 70% of the emissions that cause global warming come from our energy system? Every year, the global energy system produces almost 40 billion tons of carbon dioxide emissions — pushing our planet toward irreversible climate tipping points. As emerging economies develop and their energy needs increase, that number will only increase unless we make dramatic changes to the way we power our world.


Our Mission:
Push the technology and policy changes needed to achieve a zero-emissions, high-energy planet at an affordable cost.


Our Vision:
Meet the world’s rising energy demand in a way that is financially, socially, and environmentally sustainable.


Our Goal:
Achieve zero-emissions energy, waste, agricultural, and forest management systems by 2050.
