C2C, THE CLIMATE SOLUTIONS COLLABORATIVE, STIMULATES SUSTAINED ACTION IN CLIMATE-RELATED INVESTMENT AMONG COMMITTED PHILANTHROPIES AND FAMILY OFFICES.
C2C is building a committed and focused working group of leading philanthropies, investment managers, and family offices that are overcoming the asset owner-investment manager impasse to accelerate the flow of capital to climate investment solutions. Working group members commit – or develop their existing commitment – to invest in climate solutions that measurably reduce emissions, and support one another in deploying this capital through strategic thinking, resource sharing, and due diligence. C2C's overarching objective is bringing proposed climate solutions to scale and make the field of climate investing more connective, active, and effective.
C2C is a joint project of Confluence Philanthropy and CREO Syndicate, and launched at an event in partnership with the Clean Energy Impact Investment Center, the Climate Solutions Summit, on March 11, 2016 in Cambridge, MA.
