Clean Air Task Force (CATF) is a non-profit organization working to safeguard against the worst impacts of climate change by catalyzing the rapid global development and deployment of low-carbon energy and other climate-protecting technologies. This is accomplished through research and analysis, public advocacy leadership, and partnership with the private sector. With nearly 25 years of nationally and internationally recognized expertise on clean air policy and regulations and a fierce commitment to fully exploring all potential solutions, CATF is an environmental advocacy group with the bold ideas needed today to solve the climate crisis.
CATF is on a mission to push the change in technologies and policies needed to get to a zero-emissions, high-energy planet at an affordable cost. CAFT envisions a world where rising energy demand is met, locally and globally, in a way that is financially, socially, and environmentally sustainable.
- Advanced Energy Systems: Provide the world with pathways to a zero-carbon energy system.
- Advanced Nuclear Energy: Create a global research, development, commercial, regulatory, and social ecosystem in which nuclear technology can flourish and emerging technologies can be realized.
- Bioenergy: Redirect the production and use of conventional bioenergy so that it contributes to, rather than undermines, decarbonization and climate stability. Ensure that bioenergy use is at least carbon neutral and, where possible, carbon negative.
- Decarbonized Fossil Energy: Rapidly accelerate the adoption of carbon-capture technologies to prevent the emission of millions of tons of CO2 from power generation and industrial sources around the world.
- Power Plants: Enact direct carbon limits on power plants—gas as well as coal—and ensure the adoption of emission standards, by legislation or regulations, on U.S. fossil power plants that would zero out U.S. power sector carbon emissions by 2050.
- Super Pollutants: Catalyze deep, global reductions in methane and black carbon emissions to stave off the risk of irreversible changes to our climate.
