Mission

The Colorado Coalition for a Livable Climate (CCLC) develops and advocates strategies for reducing Colorado’s greenhouse gas emissions to levels supportive of a livable climate.

Vision

The State of Colorado’s annual greenhouse gas emissions should be supportive of limiting the global average temperature rise to 1.5° C (2.7° F) or less by the end of this century, and should become carbon neutral by 2030.

Join us!

The CCLC welcomes individuals and organizations from all racial, ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds, recognizing that Colorado’s climate movement is strengthened by collaboration across our differences.  Organizations may become members if they endorse our mission and vision statements.  Individuals may become CCLC allies if they support our mission.  If you or your organization is interested in joining us, please contact us at info@colivableclimate.org.

The CCLC recognizes that the impacts of climate change fall disproportionately on people of color, low-income people and otherwise historically marginalized groups.  Thus, the CCLC is committed to uplifting the perspectives, lived experiences and preferred solutions of these communities.
