Who We Are

NextGen Climate is a non-partisan organization focused on bringing climate change to the forefront of American politics.

Founded by investor and philanthropist Tom Steyer in 2013, we act politically to prevent climate disaster and preserve American prosperity. Working at every level, we are committed to supporting candidates, elected officials and policymakers across the country that will take bold action on climate change—and to exposing those who deny reality and cater to special interests. NextGen Climate is a 501(c)(4) organization. NextGen Climate Action Committee is a political action committee.
