The Foundationís Climate Change initiative began in 2001 with a focus on Connecticut as the Board realized the significant environmental impact of our changing climate. At first, the Foundation focused on the state of Connecticut, as it was primed to demonstrate tangible and replicable progress that could be a model for climate change action in other states. Our Climate Change initiative has since grown beyond Connecticut to the Northeast region as a whole and to the Southeastern states where we support strategies for addressing climate change at the state level. Building upon the changed political climate, the Foundation is now embarking on the goal of empowering states to be integral partners in the federal conversation on climate action and policy.
