Our Climate Strategy

Climate issues are bird issues, and renewable energy is one of the best ways we can help.
100
Gigawatts of renewable energy generation and transmission responsibly sited for deployment
30
Billion tons of carbon stored through natural systems that provide co-benefit to birds
389
Bird species on the brink due to climate change

Birds are telling us to act on climate.

There is no path to stabilizing the climate without addressing biodiversity loss and dramatically changing how we produce electricity. 探花精选 believes that renewable energy and natural climate solutions have important roles to play in mitigating the impact of climate change鈥攖he single greatest threat to birds and other species.

How We Work, Where We Work

探花精选 supports common-sense solutions to reducing carbon emissions, including conserving and restoring forests, wetlands, and grasslands that provide important habitat for birds and serve as natural solutions for storing carbon, and investing in responsibly sited clean energy.
