Limiting global temperature rise to below 1.5°Celsius while achieving sustainable development will require trillions in new investments, and a deliberate shift toward low-carbon, climate-resilient economic models.

With deep expertise in policy and finance, CPI’s analysts and advisors help governments, businesses, and financial institutions drive economic growth while addressing climate change. Our Climate Finance program, a 70-person team led by Dr. Barbara Buchner, works to drive low carbon, resilient investment at scale.
