How does a regional non-profit organization make an impact on the world's biggest environmental problem? That’s the challenge Climate Solutions has taken on.
In the face of an issue mired in partisan politics, scientific confusion, and a scope too large to easily grasp, the team at Climate Solutions decided from the beginning to focus on accelerating practical and profitable solutions to global warming.
Climate Solutions was formed when the Olympia, WA-based Atmosphere Alliance, founded by Rhys Roth, joined forces with the local Energy Outreach Center in 1998.
Since then, Climate Solutions has grown from a small store-front in Olympia with six staff to over 20 people located around the Northwest. (You can review an at-a-glance timeline of Climate Solutions' history here.)
Working at the regional level, we've built long-term relationships, often across the partisan divide. Through years of patient organizing and bridge-building, Climate Solutions has developed vibrant partnerships with an extraordinarily wide array of business, farm, government, and civic interests.
