Who we are

In 2009, T​he Myer Foundation and Monash University realised that Australia needed a new approach to drive action on climate change. One that understood the interests of business, government and investors and was trusted to be an independent, credible advisor in Australia's transition to a prosperous low carbon future.
That's why they partnered to create ClimateWorks Australia - an independent, research-based, non-profit organisation committed to catalysing reductions in greenhouse gas emissions in Australia.
Since then, ClimateWorks has built a reputation as a trusted, credible and fact-based broker by working in partnership with leaders from the private, public and non-profit sectors.

With strong links to the US-based ClimateWorks Foundation, ClimateWorks Australia also benefits from an international network of affiliated organisations that support effective policies for greenhouse gas reduction.

ClimateWorks operates under the auspices of the Monash Sustainable Development Institute (MSDI). MSDI brings together Monash University's leading researchers and educators - the very best of the best - to address the complex and interconnected challenges posed by the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals.
As one of the leading research and education institutes for sustainable development around the world, MSDI is driven to find real solutions to some of the most significant challenges facing our world today.
