CET’s Community Climate Fund

CET’s Community Climate Fund is a vehicle for regional institutions and businesses to sponsor local, high-impact carbon reduction projects that help accelerate a just and equitable transition to the low-carbon economy. 

The fund started with an investment from Williams College in Williamstown, MA. Since 2019, Williams College has donated $300,000 to unlock a diverse portfolio of local carbon mitigation projects. Combined, these projects eliminated over 2,200 tons of lifetime CO2 emissions in Massachusetts, bolstered the financial stability of resource-constrained residents and businesses, and improved the health and comfort of buildings.  

Williams’ 2021-2022 investment enabled building material recovery from 38 homes and businesses, unlocked weatherization of six small businesses and nonprofits located in environmental justice communities across Massachusetts, sponsored a residential food scrap collection pilot in Williamstown, supported air source heat pump retrofits for two income-eligible customers in Ipswich, and provided a bridge loan to a cheese farmer in central Massachusetts that enabled installation of a ground-mounted solar PV array.

If your business, Foundation, or Donor Advised Fund is interested in pooling your funds together to accomplish target projects, please be in touch.

Please contact Ashley Muspratt, President with any questions. Ashley.Muspratt@cetonline.org.
