Project Drawdown

Project Drawdown is a nonprofit organization and coalition of scholars, scientists, entrepreneurs, and advocates from across the globe that is mapping, measuring, modeling, and communicating about a collective array of substantive solutions to global warming, with the goal of reaching drawdown.

Drawdown is the point in time when the concentration of atmospheric greenhouse gases begins to decline on a year-to-year basis. Project Drawdown’s research program has developed realistic, solution-specific models, technical assessments, and policy memos projecting the financial and climate impacts of existing solutions deployed at scale over the next thirty years.

In the pursuit of sharing its findings widely, the organization has released the book Drawdown, the first of many projects to widely disseminate this information. Project Drawdown has created a broad coalition of leading climate voices who are helping to spread the message, and integrate the goal of drawdown into their own work. The organization will continue to update and expand the scope of its research, and publish and disseminate new content through online platforms and future publications.
