Energy and Society

GMF’s Energy & Society Program aims to advance transatlantic leadership on scalable policy and business solutions to reduce the risks of climate change and achieve a low-carbon, secure, and affordable energy future, while conserving natural resources. The program works to support transatlantic cooperation on U.S. and EU domestic climate and energy policies and international climate and energy cooperation more broadly. GMF believes that transatlantic cooperation on these issues is both mutually beneficial and essential for global leadership to avoid dangerous climate change. GMF seeks to inform the debate with objective data and the best examples of successful policies that could be shared across the Atlantic or more widely. Finally, GMF believes that international progress on climate and energy policy depends on the broadening of the debate away from a narrow focus on environmental policy to something that informs all social, economic, and foreign policy.
