DRIVING STRONG, MEASURABLE AND LOCAL ACTION ON CLIMATE CHANGE
Bloomberg Philanthropies’ Environment program brings together a wide range of partners, including cities, businesses, public health and environmental advocates, and citizen’s groups, to address some of the most serious threats to our environment, including climate change and overfishing. Left unchecked, carbon pollution causes long-term impacts on the global climate, including rising global temperatures, rising sea levels and extreme weather patterns, as well as health risks such as worsening smog and a range of respiratory illnesses. Overfishing poses risks to a vital food and economic resource for billions of people.
Bloomberg Philanthropies drives measurable, local action on climate and sustainability through our Sustainable Cities program, Clean Energy program, Vibrant Oceans Initiative, and Sustainable Finance Initiative, as well as Mike Bloomberg’s role as a leading global environmentalist. Mike is the President of the Board of C40 Cities, Chair of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures, Co-Chair of the Global Covenant of Mayors, and previously served as the UN Secretary-General’s Special Envoy for Climate Action.
