Climate One at The Commonwealth Club is a thriving leadership dialogue on energy, the environment and the economy. It brings together top thinkers and doers from business, government, academia and advocacy groups to advance the discussion about a clean energy future.
Climate One held its first forum in the fall of 2007 at The Commonwealth Club. Coinciding with a report on the effects of climate disruption on developing countries from the United Nations Development Programme, speakers included Google executive Larry Brilliant, CH2M Hill sustainability manager Andrea Gardner, UN official Ad Melkert, and venture capitalist Nancy Pfund.
Since then, Climate One has sharpened its focus toward food, water, transportation, energy, innovation and resilience. Today, the United Nations, Apple, Shell Oil, the Sierra Club, politicians, and environmentalists are coming together at Climate One to address one of the greatest challenges of our time.
