About UsSee Our Gifts
Clean Air-Cool Planet (CA-CP) is a science-based, non-partisan, non-profit organization finding and promoting solutions to global warming. CA-CP works with companies, campuses, communities and science centers to reduce their carbon emissions - helping partners, their constituents, and other opinion leaders and stakeholders understand global warming’s impacts and best available solutions. CA-CP’s comprehensive outreach efforts celebrate commitment, innovation and success in climate action.
Clean Air-Cool Planet creates partnerships in the Northeast to implement solutions to climate change and build constituencies for effective climate policies and actions.
Three core programs center on greenhouse gas reductions and climate leadership with corporations, communities and campuses. We also run the Northeast Science Center Collaborative, the Carbon Coalition, and a robust Science Outreach program.
In all of our programs, we showcase practical climate solutions that demonstrate the economic opportunities and environmental benefits associated with early actions on climate change.
Since our beginning in 1999, CA-CP has helped more than 200 leading companies, communities, and campuses reduce their greenhouse gas emissions; today our partners are eliminating 1,000,000 tons annually. In addition, we’ve created effective outreach programs to educate and mobilize thousands of Northeast citizens to seek global warming solutions within their own communities and households as well through state and regional policy.

A Gift Card
Promote Clean Air
One anti-idling sign
Fund an 18 x 24 permanent metal, reflective sign to help a community with its campaign to remind people to shut off their engines while they are waiting at the curb. Public education can help preserve public health, air and water quality while reducing the threat of global warming. Research has shown that even in low temperatures, idling a vehicle is an unnecessary waste of...
Light A Green Tree
Holiday carbon credits
Through Clean Air-Cool Planet's "Green Trees" program, communities can “green up" the energy they use to light their holiday trees. Your gift of $25 makes it possible for a community to offset the carbon pollution from the town's holiday lighting by purchase of renewable energy certificates from NativeEnergy, investing in domestic energy from wind and small-farm methane generated electricity, reducing air pollution, greenhouse gases and...
Help A Campus
You can help campuses take the first step toward effective global warming leadership by providing them with Clean Air-Cool Planet's Campus Carbon Calculator. This software helps campuses document and analyze the sources of their global warming pollution, and observe trends over time. The Calculator, road-tested by more than 200 colleges and universities across North America, provides a framework for data collection and analysis that makes...
Cool A Campus
10 campus solution kits
College campuses can be leaders in addressing global warming using the talents of students, faculty, staff, and the community and their expertise in education. Clean Air-Cool Planet’s Campus Solutions packets – based on our nationally recognized Campus Carbon Calculator and our campus toolkit – are designed to help institutions create a realistic plan of action and get started reducing greenhouse gases. By sponsoring 10 of...
