Meridian helps leaders identify practical ways to mitigate the causes of climate change and adapt to its impacts.
Our Work in Climate Change
Our team has over two decades of experience convening climate change leaders in the United States and abroad. We help diverse groups forge strategic alliances, build capacity, and implement shared roadmaps for action. Halting and adapting to climate change are complex challenges that require effective communication and collaboration across impacted groups, including:
- scientists and researchers
- policy makers
- industry leaders
- resource managers and local leaders
- environmental advocates
- indigenous peoples
Meridian facilitates exchanges between these groups, forging unlikely partnerships and groundbreaking action.
On the local level in the U.S., we support capacity building for climate adaptation planning. Nationally, we convene CEOs of Fortune 500 companies, alongside senior environmental NGO leaders, to articulate a compelling business case for climate action. We also help the CEOs advocate as a group for climate policy on Capitol Hill.
Internationally, we have supported country representatives in their preparations for annual negotiations under the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) for over a decade. These negotiations relate to complex topics, such as tracking tropical forests’ carbon dioxide storage over time. Our diverse portfolio of climate-related work includes:
- global, national, and state climate change policy
- clean energy technology advancement
- sustainable forest management
- community climate adaptation planning
- agriculture and water sector climate adaptation
