European Climate Foundation of ECF was founded in 2008 as an international non-profit organisation whose aims are to promote climate and energy policies that it says would reduce Europe's greenhouse gas emissions and to help Europe play a stronger international leadership role in mitigating climate change.[1]


According to the group, key elements of a sustainable energy future include:

  • A substantial increase in energy efficiency
  • A successful transition from conventional to renewable energy
  • Maintenance of the earth’s ecological systems and the life-supporting services they provide
  • Equitable distribution of energy services to different segments of the population, both internationally and within nations.

The European Climate Foundation is funded by the Nationale Postcode Loterij, The Arcadia Fund, The Children's Investment Fund Foundation, The ClimateWorks Foundation, The McCall MacBain Foundation, Oak Foundation and The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation.


The European Climate Foundation established CarbonBrief in the end of 2010.[2]
