As a cross-disciplinary Center at a nationally-ranked public research university, the CCI is committed to serving as a resource for decision-makers across the public and private sectors. CCI faculty serve on committees and panels that inform climate policy and action, including our own University’s Climate Action Plan, Climate Ready Boston, Somerville Climate Forward, and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Sixth Assessment Report. Our work has been used in the private sector to inform investors about climate risks and opportunities.
The CCI regularly hosts regional and state policymakers and offers accessible, engaging policy briefings. Recent examples include an interactive simulation we offered to the Massachusetts House Committee on Global Warming and Climate Change, legislative briefings we have offered at the Massachusetts State House on climate and bioenergy policy, and invited presentations we have given to elected officials and planning councils.
Please contact us if we can serve as a resource in your own climate and energy decision-making.
