Selected Accomplishments

Our Story

The Cape Cod Climate Change Collaborative is a nonprofit group of concerned citizens, energy professionals, faith community leaders, youth activists, planners, elected officials and more who have come together to support the mission to reduce ways in which the Cape & Islands region contributes to climate change and to protect our region from its potentially devastating impacts. We share information, support initiatives, promote best practices, and pool resources to further this mission.

Since the Climate Collaborative’s launch in late 2016 through today, we’ve grown from a small group of environmental organizations to a nonprofit with more than 2800 stakeholders representing diverse sectors, age groups, professions, faith groups, and educational backgrounds. We are enormously grateful to our volunteers, sponsors, donors, and granting organizations who’ve enabled this growth and collaborate—the operative word—with one another and with us to advance the mission.

Selected Accomplishments

Some of our work is highlighted below, and we are justly proud of these accomplishments, impressive for any organization, but even more given that all work has been performed by unpaid volunteers. That so many passionate and committed individuals, businesses and organizations have joined the Climate Collaborative and are willing to devote time, resources, and talents to collaborate in helping forge a path forward to a carbon-free world for the Cape & Islands is, indeed, remarkable.

As we anticipate the coming year, we see possibilities and reasons for optimism everywhere we look and opportunities for each of us to contribute skills, talent, and energy to the cause. If you’d like to learn more about how to be part of this effort, please visit us at
