Drawdown Labs will focus on several key areas:
Working collaboratively, Drawdown Labs will develop new approaches and strategies for businesses to advance climate solutions in the broader world. Drawing upon the expertise of Project Drawdown and the member companies, Drawdown Labs will explore new approaches to address climate change at scale — across sectors, geographies, and levels of agency.
Drawdown Labs will tap the considerable technical expertise of Project Drawdown’s staff, academic collaborators, and advisors to help guide the development and deployment of effective climate solutions. With unique experience ranging across multiple sectors – including electricity, food & agriculture, industry, transportation, buildings, and natural climate solutions– Project Drawdown is the world’s leading “go-to place” for in-depth knowledge about hundreds of potential climate actions. As a non-partisan, non-commercial entity, Project Drawdown is a trusted source, and can be counted on to give unbiased, evidence-based advice.
Drawdown Labs will develop new, collaborative tools needed to analyze, assess, and deploy climate solutions. Project Drawdown already has detailed datasets and models for dozens of different climate solutions worldwide, outlining their greenhouse gas and financial performance, and we will work to adapt them for different settings and stakeholders. We will also develop new tools that enhance collaboration, communication, and engagement around the world to deploy climate solutions.
As the world’s leading resource for climate solutions, Project Drawdown offers custom programs to help engage business leaders, employees, customers, and other stakeholders in this crucial work. Already, Project Drawdown is developing engagement programs and a series of new classes, webinars, and multi-media packages that can be tailored to multiple audiences. As a trusted voice for climate solutions, Project Drawdown adds transparency, legitimacy, and know-how to these conversations.
A Broader Voice
Working together, Drawdown Labs will create a powerful “bully pulpit” for advancing important topics and conversations around climate solutions. The combined voice and leadership of Drawdown Labs members can help encourage governments, communities, and other businesses to accelerate the deployment of climate solutions, and the transition to a climate-safe world.
