Project Catalyst is an initiative of the ClimateWorks Foundation (www.climateworks.org). ClimateWorks is a global, nonprofit philanthropic foundation headquartered in San Francisco, California with a network of affiliated foundations in China, India, the US, and the European Union. The ClimateWorks family of organizations focus on enacting policies that reduce greenhouse gas emissions through three general policy areas: energy efficiency standards, low-carbon energy supply, and forest conservation/agriculture.
The European Climate Foundation (www.europeanclimate.org), part of the ClimateWorks network, is deeply involved in the work of Project Catalyst, providing direction to the analysis carried out and playing a strong role in the outreach to stakeholders in the negotiations.
Other organisations have been contracted by Project Catalyst in order to carry out analysis or secretariat services under the direction of ClimateWorks and the European Climate Foundation. These have included McKinsey & Company (www.mckinsey.com/clientservice/ccsi), a leading consulting firm which has carried out extensive analysis on climate change issues for the public, private and non-governmental sectors, and AccountAbility (www.accountability21.net), a global non-profit organisation focused on issues of governance and institutional design.
