Global investments by governments and large financial institutions continue to flow into projects that accelerate climate change, lock the world into continued fossil fuel dependence, and wreak environmental havoc.
Center for International Environmental Law (CIEL) works to demonstrate to investors, communities, and regulators that the legal and financial risks associated with oil and gas production substantially outweigh any potential benefits. They do this through supporting targeted legal opposition to industry expansion, corporate accountability campaigns against the largest carbon producers, and analysis highlighting the interwoven financial and legal risks of new fossil fuel investments.
CIEL has throughout the years played a critical role in developing evidence, refining legal theories, guiding strategy, and magnifying the impact of the growing climate accountability movement globally. KR Foundation has supported CIEL since 2015 and has just approved a grant that will continue support for the next two years.
