C2C, THE CLIMATE SOLUTIONS COLLABORATIVE, STIMULATES SUSTAINED ACTION IN CLIMATE-RELATED INVESTMENT AMONG COMMITTED PHILANTHROPIES AND FAMILY OFFICES.
C2C is 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 address climate change. Working group members commit – or develop their existing commitment – to make investments 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 market-based climate solutions to scale and to make the field of climate investing more connective, active, and effective.
