The Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC) is a voluntary partnership of governments, intergovernmental organizations, businesses, scientific institutions and civil society organizations committed to improving air quality and protecting the climate through actions to reduce short-lived climate pollutants.
CCAC’s global network currently includes over 120 state and non-state partners, and hundreds of local actors carrying out activities across economic sectors.
The Coalition helps partners and stakeholders create policies and practices that will deliver substantial short-lived climate pollutant reductions over the coming decades.
The Coalition’s partners and initiative participants work in cooperation with key short-lived climate pollutant emitters and other stakeholders from around the world to encourage, enable and catalyze action to reduce emissions.
To achieve real and ambitious reductions, the Coalition focuses on four key strategies:
- Enable transformative action by providing knowledge, resources, and technical and institutional capacity to act and supporting the sharing of information, experience, and expertise
- Mobilize support for action to put short-lived climate pollutants on the policy map through advocacy at all levels of government and in the private sector and civil society
- Increase the availability of and access to financial resources to support the successful implementation of scalable, transformational action
- Enhance scientific knowledge to help decision-makers scale up action and promote the multiple benefits of action on short-lived climate pollutants
In January 2019, the World Green Building Council announced a partnership with the CCAC to offer a focus and expertise around the building and construction industry to this coalition of global leaders.
