Climate Council

The organisation

Climate Council is Australia’s leading climate change communications organisation. We provide authoritative, expert advice to the public on climate change, energy solutions and international action, based on the most up-to-date science available.

We’re made up of some of the country’s leading climate scientists, energy, health and policy experts, as well as a dedicated team of staff, and a huge community of volunteers and supporters. As an independent voice on climate change, we get climate stories into the media, produce hard-hitting reports, call out misinformation and support Australia’s shift to a prosperous, renewable-powered economy.

The Climate Council was founded in 2013 by tens of thousands of supporters, in what was Australia’s largest ever crowd-funding campaign, to create a new, independent and 100% community-funded organisation in response to the abolition of the Australian Climate Commission.
