The Climate Capital Forum (CCF) brings together leading thinkers and key policy makers to address critical issues on decarbonisation and offer to support efforts at all levels of government to build a strong future economy and long-term job opportunities that will benefit Australia and uphold our commitments in our region and internationally.

We call for an investment of $100 billion strategic public capital to “crowd-in” around $300 billion of private capital that will support the Australian economy’s renewable energy revolution.

We work in the public interest across the policy, investment, community and advocacy sectors to ensure a diverse set of voices and perspectives are heard.

Driven by a core group setting direction, CCF is funded by philanthropy, and is hosted by Climate Energy Finance (CEF).
