Pew Center on Global Climate Change

Abstract: 
Established in 1998, the Pew Center is composed of twenty-one major companies, with most included in the Fortune 500, working together through the Center to educate the public on the risks, challenges and solutions to climate change. The objective of the Pew Center on Global Climate Change is to educate the public and key policy makers about the causes and potential consequences of climate change, and to encourage the domestic and international community to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases. To accomplish this objective, the Pew Center is focusing on three areas, including: (1) to release highly publicized reports on environmental impacts, economics and policy issues; (2) to educate the public through advertising, public-speaking events and conferences; and (3) to advance international negotiations on climate change by coordinating cross-country policy, industry and government discussions.
