The Institute for Climate and Society (iCS) is a philanthropic organization that promotes prosperity, justice and low carbon development in Brazil. We operate as a bridge between international and national funders and local partners. Consequently, we are part of a wide network of philanthropic organizations that are dedicated to finding solutions to the climate crisis.
iCS outlines plans of action to overcome climate problems from a social perspective. Therefore, it prioritizes measures that, in addition to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, also result in improvements in the quality of life for society, especially for those most vulnerable.​
The main activity of the Institute is to provide grants in order to promote projects and organizations that seek to:
• BUILD evidence that qualifies the debate and supports the decision-making
• PROMOTE advocacy, campaigns and communication
• CREATE spaces of interaction between different actors and sectors
• ENCOURAGE the exchange of knowledge and experience between Brazil and the rest of the world​
Furthermore, we are also dedicated to the engagement of society with the subject of climate change, the implementation of our own projects and the institutional training of civil society organizations.
