Climate change, along with associated threats for property, health, and human lives, including our homes, is the greatest ever global challenge for humankind and society as a whole.
In thinking about how to help our own people and the economy as a whole and all its stakeholders, primarily companies from various sectors (in this extremely complex and vital area), we decided to establish the International Institute for Climate Action.
It was founded and it operates as an expert non-governmental organisation for performing economic activity and is a continuation of the activities started in 2012 through the Croatian Association for Carbon Footprint Reduction, or HU-CO2.Mission statement
