UCLA Institute of the Environment & Sustainability

UCLA's IoES gives students and changemakers the platform to develop viable climate solutions through advancing scientific research and the development of powerful public/private partnerships. With many of the most promising solutions still out of reach, we need more scientists tackling these problems. There is a heavy burden on the shoulders of programs like UCLA's IoES. Our collective support gives more resources to unearth next generation solutions. - Pete

Banking that reverses climate change

One of the biggest blockers to the massive adoption of emissions-reducing technology is access to low-cost capital—a lot of it. Atmos is solving the problem by building a new banking model designed to exclusively finance climate-positive projects at scale, with bank deposits. When you open an Atmos account, you benefit from higher savings rates while advancing the transition to a clean economy.
