Spark accelerates emerging climate mitigation and adaptation approaches, focusing on new ideas and research that are currently under-addressed and under-resourced, but potentially high-impact.

A 501(c)(3) non-profit, Spark is both a doer and a funder. We work with scientists, policymakers, and peer organizations to support the growth of fields with potential for limiting warming, managing Earth systems risk, and helping to enable our return to a safe climate. We collaborate directly with leaders in these emerging fields, and we also offer grants to further the work of organizations making an impact in these fields.

Our Mission

To accelerate progress in emerging, potentially high-impact approaches for climate mitigation and adaptation that will contribute to humanity’s comprehensive portfolio of solutions and responses to enable our return to a safe climate, while minimizing risk to societal stability.

Our Vision

To return the climate system to a stable state that supports flourishing human and natural systems and avoids the most devastating potential risks along the way.
