Clinton Foundation: Clinton Climate Initiative

Updated: 10/14/19


Founded by former President Bill Clinton and based primarily in New York City, the Clinton Foundation convenes businesses, governments, NGOs, and individuals to improve global health and wellness, increase opportunity for women and girls, reduce childhood obesity, create economic opportunity and growth, and help communities address the effects of climate change. Under this umbrella, the Clinton Climate Initiative approaches the issue of climate change by increasing energy efficiency in cities, increasing the large-scale supply of clean energy, and working to stop deforestation.

Programs/Services Offered:

The Clinton Climate Initiative achieves its goals through a multifaceted repertoire of projects, including investing in green energy in Haiti, reducing the carbon emissions of built environments by improving construction and maintenance standards and instituting an employee-based benefit loan program to help people retrofit their homes to be more energy efficient, and working with governments and local partners in Indonesia, Kenya, Tanzania and Guyana to develop sustainable forest management projects and measure forest carbon emissions.

Student Opportunities:

Fellowships, internships, and volunteer opportunities are offered in conjunction with many of the Clinton Foundation’s projects and allow students to participate in research, communications, logistics, and technological support. Visit for current listings and application instructions.
