Horses grazing on private land adjacent to EDF Renewable's 250 MW Roosevelt Wind Project in Roosevelt County, New Mexico, USA. The 125 Vestas 2-MW turbines of this project, completed in 2015, generate enough electricity to power the equivalent of 138,000 average New Mexico homes, according to the US Energy Information Administration. As a result, the Roosevelt Wind Project will prevent approximately 725,000 metric tons of new greenhouse gas emissions annually, the equivalent of the annual emissions from approximately 150,000 passenger vehicles using internal combustion engines (ICE). 

About Project Drawdown

Project Drawdown is the world’s leading resource for climate solutions.

Our mission is to help the world stop climate change—as quickly, safely, and equitably as possible. 

To do this, we pursue three key strategies:

Advance Effective, Science-based Climate Solutions and Strategies. We do the science no one else does to cut through the noise and find effective “whole system” solutions and strategies for stopping climate change.

Foster Bold, New Climate Leadership. We inform, inspire, and empower business leaders, investors, and philanthropists to take bold, new positions, act more strategically, and rapidly bring climate solutions to scale.

Promote New Narratives and New Voices. We work to shift the conversation about climate change from “doom and gloom” to “possibility and opportunity.” And we elevate new, underrepresented climate heroes through storytelling and “passing the mic.”

A 501(c)(3) nonprofit, non-partisan organization, Project Drawdown is funded by individual and institutional donations.

From individual action to international finance and beyond, Project Drawdown is accelerating the adoption of climate solutions around the world in partnership with corporate leaders, investors, philanthropists, policymakers, educators, community change makers, and more.
