Project Drawdown is the world’s leading source of climate solutions.
Project Drawdown is a world-class research and communication organization which serves as a non-partisan, non-commercial, highly-trusted source of solutions to reverse global warming.
Project Drawdown is shifting the larger global conversation on climate change from “doom and gloom” to a sense of opportunity, possibility, and hope for the future. We share climate solutions with the world through our best-selling book, public presentations, and content. We collaborate with media and non-profit partners to further spread our messages to global audiences.
As a trusted partner to communities, policy-makers, non-profits, businesses, philanthropists, and investors around the world, we partner with these organizations to help implement Drawdown solutions worldwide, moving the world to a climate-safe future.
“Drawdown has 100 ideas that are in force now, people are doing them now, that will lead to the drawdown point at which more CO2 will be removed from the atmosphere than is going into it. It is very optimistic.” - Margaret Atwood
We have modeled the atmospheric and financial impacts of deploying and scaling existing solutions globally over the next thirty years.
These scholars, scientists, entrepreneurs, and advocates learn how to describe a realistic future in which the world achieves drawdown by collecting and analyzing the best available research on 100 carefully vetted technological, social, and ecological solutions.
Drawdown is the work of a prominent and growing community of researchers, climatologists, geologists, engineers, agronomists, biologists, botanists, economists, financial analysts, architects, companies, agencies, NGOs, and other experts who draft, model, fact check, review, and validate all text, inputs, sources, and calculations.
Our purpose is to provide helpful information and tools to a wide variety of individuals and organizations interested in stopping global warming and reversing climate change: students, teachers, researchers, philanthropists, investors, entrepreneurs, business people, farmers, policymakers, engaged citizens, and more.
Our advisors are an exceptional group of individuals with deep experience and passion in climate and related fields. Advisors assist us with visioning, strategy, and perhaps most importantly, they help us edit, improve and refine the information we present on climate change.
