University of Berkeley | CoolClimate Network
CoolClimate is a consortium of universities, businesses, governments, and nonprofit organizations dedicated to the broad dissemination of climate solutions. They provide smart decision-making software tools and programs to accelerate the transition to a clean energy economy. CoolClimate’s top rated carbon calculator quickly identifies the unique opportunities each individual, business, organization or community holds to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and compares users to peers. An online gamified experience ("competition software") uses behavior change best practices to enable organizations and communities to activate, educate, motivate, and empower program participants to make low-carbon choices. Their unique policy planning tool provides consumption-based GHG inventories of any US location, with policy scenarios through the year 2050. CoolClimate also works with network members to design policies and programs that meet local needs and motivate populations to take climate action.
