The Centre for Climate Reporting is a not-for-profit investigative journalism organisation focused on the biggest story of our time: climate change.
Across the world, powerful politicians, companies and individuals are obstructing the transition to a low-carbon economy. They often do so behind closed doors, while publicly claiming to be part of the solution to climate change.
Through in-depth, cross-border investigative reporting, our mission is to hold these actors to account.
To ensure that these stories reach as wide an audience as possible, we partner and collaborate with the world’s most respected media organisations.
We report without fear or favour and are committed to rigorous, fair, public interest journalism.
