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.Super Pollutants
New analysis reveals stark disparities in methane emissions and emissions intensity between major oil and gas operators
BOSTON – A first-of-its-kind analysis from Ceres and the Clean Air Task Force provides investors, operators, natural gas purchasers, policymakers and regulators with the data needed to directly compare relative emissions intensity and total reported methane, carbon dioxide, and nitrous oxide emissions for nearly 300 U.S. oil and gas producers. The results reveal dramatic variability […]Zero-Carbon Fuels
Why the Future of Long-Haul Heavy Trucking Probably Includes a lot of Hydrogen
The climate crisis requires that we decarbonize our global transportation systems. To meet this requirement, the purported solution for some time now has been “electrify everything”. Technical experts and the climate-concerned public alike have long pushed the idea that the future will be one of clean electricity that powers just about all aspects of our […]Climate
CATF Experts on the IEA’s Net-Zero by 2050 Report
The IEA released a special report on Tuesday that charts the course for the global energy sector to reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2050, marking “an historic inflection point in the global climate solutions debate,” according to Clean Air Task Force Executive Director Armond Cohen, whose full statement you can read here. The report, Net-Zero […]
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.

How We're Different
Facilitating the commercialization of emerging and proven climate change mitigation technologies.
Working practically and objectively to catalyze and spark realistic change that leads to major impact through legal and legislative advocacy.
Driving support for the most effective policy and technology strategies.
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.
