2020 CATF Annual Report – A Year of Global Impact
We are thrilled to share the following report outlining our leadership throughout 2020. From our expansion in the EU to helping secure $125B for five years of energy technology at the United States federal level—CATF was in the driver’s seat despite a tumultuous year.Policy
A critical step forward: CATF perspectives on the bipartisan infrastructure bill
This week, the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee advanced the Energy Infrastructure Act of 2021, authorizing nearly $100 billion in energy programs — including a host of federal clean energy infrastructure initiatives that are critical to U.S. efforts to combat climate change. “This bill has a lot to recommend it,” said Lindsey Baxter Griffith, Director […]Zero-Carbon Fuels
High-level workshop finds electrification, zero-carbon fuels, zero-carbon fuel standard critical to decarbonizing transportation
BOSTON, July 15th, 2021 – Today, Clean Air Task Force (CATF) issued a report that synthesizes the findings from a high-level workshop it convened with 25 researchers and thought leaders from various facets of the global transportation sector to assess options for decarbonization by 2050. The consensus from the workshop was that pursuing various pathways […]Policy

First Reaction to ‘Fit For 55’, the European Commission’s plan to reduce GHG emissions by 55% by 2030
Today, the European Commission published its much-anticipated Fit for 55 Package. It consists of 13 legislative proposals completely revamping EU climate and energy laws. With the European Green Deal, the EU committed to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55% by 2030. It is now time for the EU to transform this target […]
We push the change in technologies and policies needed to get to a zero-emissions, high-energy planet at an affordable cost. Imagine a world where the energy needs of all humans are met efficiently without damaging the atmosphere.

Examining All Options with an Open Mind
Advanced Energy Systems
Provide the world with a vision of practical, resilient pathways to a zero carbon energy system.
Advanced Nuclear Energy
Create a normal global research and development, commercial, regulatory, and social ecosystem in which nuclear technology can flourish in order to decarbonize global energy production.
Redirect the production and use of bioenergy so that it contributes to—rather than undermines—decarbonization and climate stability.
Accelerate the adoption of carbon capture technologies to prevent CO2 emissions from power generation and industrial sources.
Ensure the adoption of U.S. emission standards on U.S. fossil power plants to zero out U.S. power sector carbon emissions by 2050.
Catalyze deep, global reductions in methane and black carbon emissions to help stave off the risk of irreversible changes to our climate.
