With a clear focus on reducing global emissions to limit temperature increase to 1.5˚C above pre-industrial levels, CIFF’s climate work spans a range of sectors, including energy, transport, industry, food and land use, alongside cross-cutting strategic levers such as finance and accountability, diplomacy, legal action, and strategic communications.
