Ang aming Diskarte

Gumagamit ang programa ng Midwest Climate & Energy na pondo ng philanthropic upang suportahan ang mga pagsisikap na bumuo ng kapangyarihan sa pamamagitan ng pakikipagsosyo, pag-align ng mga layunin sa klima at equity upang maisulong ang matapang na aksyon sa krisis sa klima.

Ang aming programa ay tumatagal ng a nagbabago ang lens ng mga system, na nakatuon sa paglilipat ng mga kundisyon na nagpapanatili ng krisis sa klima, na kasama ang istrukturang rasismo. Dinidirekta namin ang pagbibigay ng trabaho sa trabaho na naglilipat ng mga modelo ng kaisipan, binabago ang lakas ng lakas, nakikipag-ugnayan sa mga pamayanan, at isinusulong ang mga nakapagpapalit na patakaran, kasanayan, at daloy ng mapagkukunan, upang lubhang maputol ang polusyon ng carbon sa Midwest noong 2030.

Alinsunod sa Foundation's Strategic Framework, the program’s approach is grounded in continuous learning, innovation, and adaptive action as the economic, political, and social context in which we operate continues to evolve.

 

Ang aming mga Istratehiya

Baguhin ang Sistema ng Enerhiya

We aim to ensure that the Midwest equitably transitions to an energy grid capable of powering an increasingly electrified society – a grid that’s powered by clean energy sources, accessible and affordable to ratepayers, and flexible and resilient to accommodate more clean power and withstand disruptive events.

Our grantmaking through this strategy will:

  • Engage the utility sector and related decision-making venues as a crucial lever for system transformation
  • Amplify stories of the clean energy transition and combat mis- and disinformation
  • Expand solutions that advance customer options for clean energy that is accessible, equitable, and affordable
  • Elevate voices that are representative of the rich diversity of the Midwest

Decarbonize Transportation

We aim to drastically reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the transportation sector in the Midwest through electrification and reducing driving (vehicle miles traveled, or “VMT”) by increasing the use of transit, biking, and other mobility options. We support the Midwest States leading in transportation infrastructure implementation that is equitable, and sustainable and ensures that everyone has access to clean, affordable, and accessible transportation mobility options.

Our grantmaking through this strategy will:

  • Support increased public sector investment in transit, active transportation modes, and other shared mobility options.
  • Support the equitable deployment and implementation of electrification infrastructure.
  • Elevate the engagement of diverse Midwest communities to advance transportation planning that prioritizes climate and equity and repairs historical harms resulting from discriminatory policies.

Decarbonize Buildings

We aim to dramatically reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the buildings sector in the Midwest, cutting energy usage, electrifying equipment and appliances, and resolving the energy insecurities and burdens of under-resourced households.

Our grantmaking through this strategy will:

  • Engage with the utility sector and related decision-making venues as a crucial lever for building decarbonization
  • Raise the bar on building performance to incorporate increasingly electrified end-uses, promote health, safety, and comfort, and center the real needs of people
  • Bridge across sectors and break down silos to fundamentally shift the paradigm for how buildings are built
  • Scale innovation to advance real-world examples of carbon-free buildings in the Midwest

Working Lands

We aim to partner with the stewards of working lands to advance solutions that cut greenhouse gas (methane and nitrox oxide) emissions, sequester carbon, and build soil resiliency in the face of increasing climate disruptions while centering the leadership of farmers and rural communities’ prosperity.

Our Grantmaking through this strategy will:

  • Promote the leadership of farmers and farmer-led organizations to advance climate solutions.
  • Build partnerships with public and private sectors to seed and scale farming practices that reduce emissions and sequester carbon.
  • Support organizing and advocacy infrastructure in the Midwest for an inclusive farming system with strong workers’ rights, that honors indigenous farming knowledge, and has equitable opportunities for BIPOC and emerging farmers.

Palakasin ang Paglahok sa Demokratiko

We aim to increase the statewide infrastructure and capacity to build power, engage diverse people in advancing our shared prosperity, and create platforms for broader participation in movements to realize vibrant, equitable, and climate-resilient communities.

Our grantmaking through this strategy will:

  • Bolster organizations, networks and intermediaries working to engage and organize communities toward more powerful participation in civic life; and
  • Ensure our democratic institutions and policymaking arenas are accessible and equipped to meet the challenge of this climate moment. ​

This is a shared goal with the Vibrant & Equitable Communities programa
