Climate Corps®

Accelerate & accomplish your climate goals

Climate Corps® is building a network of climate leaders to accelerate a clean energy future for all.

The innovative fellowship program trains talented and passionate graduate students and pairs them with companies and public institutions determined to meet their climate and energy goals. Climate Corps fellows spend a summer designing tools and recommendations to accomplish emissions reduction goals by reducing energy consumption, procuring renewable energy, electrifying fleets, and engaging suppliers.

Climate Corps® is the go-to resource for meeting your sustainability goals while also launching the careers of the climate leaders of tomorrow.

Our Impact

The numbers say it all: Since the program’s inception in 2008, over 1,400 graduate students have been placed in more than 600 leading organizations spanning the U.S., China and India. Together they have helped identify energy savings worth more than $1.6 billion, the equivalent of over 2.2 million metric tons in carbon emissions. Today, Climate Corps’ active and growing alumni network comprises 2,300 former fellows and host representatives.

Featured Host Organizations

Over the last 15 years, Climate Corps has played an important role in Environmental Defense Fund’s (EDF) efforts to achieve its mission of building a vital Earth for everyone. In that time, we have recruited, placed and supported more than 1,500 Climate Corps fellows working with over 600 companies and organizations across the U.S., China and India, and have built a network of 2,500 climate leaders and practitioners dedicated to solving the climate crisis.
