Linden Trust for Conservation

Markets Initiative

LTC recently launched a Markets Initiative, which seeks to encourage the adoption of an economy-wide, market-based approach to address the challenge of climate change and advancing a clean-energy economy.  Central to that objective is supporting policies that can boost the economy, job creation and innovation while cutting pollution and improving public health.  Consistent with our problem-solving orientation, we believe a market-based approach will allow leaders from across the political spectrum to work together to find a middle ground to address this most urgent challenge.  The Initiative is funded by Linden Trust and a bipartisan group of businesspeople who have donated to Linden Trust.

Goals for the program are to (1) develop policy proposals based on the best research and analysis and (2) nurture a national conversation about economically sound approaches  The Markets Initiative will support organizations in line with these objectives.
