Mission & Equity Approach


Our purpose is a just and resilient future.

Climate Resolve builds collaborations to champion equitable climate solutions. We connect communities, organizations and policymakers to address a global problem with local action. We inclusively develop practical initiatives that reduce climate pollution and prepare for climate impacts. Using our collective power to tackle climate change, we are creating a thriving California and inspiring others to act. Our purpose is a just and resilient future.


Since its launch in 2010, Climate Resolve has prioritized working with communities that are most affected by climate change impacts.

The residents of these communities are predominantly Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC).

Our work includes advocating in partnership with grassroots groups, assisting communities to obtain funding for climate solutions, and ensuring equitable implementation of climate legislation.

As a collective, Climate Resolve staff have identified and made the following commitments to elevate racial, social, and environmental equity throughout all of our work.

Climate Resolve is committed to:

We understand that this is not an exhaustive list of equity commitments, and pledge to continue to learn from our staff and community partners to move towards climate justice.
