Clean Air Task Force (CATF) is a non-profit global organization dedicated to the near-elimination of climate pollution from Earth’s energy, agricultural, waste and forest management systems.
CATF is highly respected for its deep expertise and research on energy and industrial systems and potential strategies, technologies, and policies that can radically shrink their impact on the planet’s atmosphere. Our team of 40+ experts and advocates (and global network of subject matter experts and civil society partners) put this research and knowledge into action by designing and enacting public policies that drive toward zero emissions. We also support policies and work directly with private industry to innovate in technology to make the path to zero emissions swift and affordable.
CATF is based in the United States and headquartered in Boston, with operations in Brussels and global work through partners in a number of continents and a number of international organizations. CATF’s super pollutants initiatives aim to reduce pollutants, such as methane and black carbon that will have the greatest impact on warming the planet over the near term and offer the most promising targets for immediate cleanup. Taken together, efforts to reduce super pollutants globally could prevent more than half a degree C of warming, while also delivering numerous additional public health and ecological benefits.
