ClimateAction.Tech (CAT) is a community of tech workers. Our mission is to provide support and guidance for systemic change in our organizations and industries, to face the climate crisis.

We welcome anyone who works in the tech industry, in any capacity, at any stage of their climate journey.

The tech industry can be both a cause of climate change and a solution. How do we transition our sector to be more sustainable and, at the same time, help transition the world to be more sustainable?

Join us at TEDxClimateActionTech as we share actionable ideas about solutions to the climate crisis, focusing on the tech industry.
