Climate for Ideas conducts research on environmental issues in order to advance sound science and sound policy for companies, government and non-governmental organizations. It focuses on the nexus of climate and forests, biodiversity conservation in forests, the paper industry and markets for wood and paper products. We develop tools and analysis that help to improve policy formation and purchasing choices to improve environmental performance.


Climate for Ideas exists to increase scientific literacy and competency in the NGO movement related to conservation of forests, wood products and the paper industry. We do this through research and analysis conducted on behalf of both NGOs and industry.
