Smarter, Faster, Cooler Carbon Management

Partnership



The CoolClimate Network Provides a variety of tools for households, businesses, local governments and non-governmental organizations. Outside organizations partner with CCN through our Research Consortium.

Member organizations of the CCN Research Consortium can have any existing calculators, widgets or community management tools pre-set for their location and integrated into the partner website. The Oregon DEQ Calculator provides a great example of this.

Premium partners have the opportunity to developed highly customized calculators powered by CoolClimate data and technology for their company or organization. As an example see the World Wildlife Fund Calculator.
