The Crux Alliance was established in 2018 to support the rapid implementation of ambitious, cutting-edge climate policies. By using top-of-the-class, nonprofit organizations with deep policy design expertise, the Crux Alliance helps policymakers in the 20 highest-emitting countries to design carbon mitigation policies for the sectors critical to long-term climate stability. Crux partners, the Crux Policy Centers (CPCs), address the following sectors and operate worldwide supported by a lean, expert Secretariat:
Power: Agora Energiewende and the Regulatory Assistance Project (RAP)
Vehicles and Fuel: The International Council for Clean Transportation (ICCT)
Urban Mobility: The Institute for Transportation and Development Policy (ITDP)
Industry: Agora Energiewende
Buildings: The Global Building Performance Network (GBPN)
The Crux Alliance is a philanthropic fund and project housed at the Aspen Global Change Institute (AGCI). Crux is facilitated and managed through a partnership between AGCI and Energy Innovation: Policy and Technology (EI), with EI providing day-to-day management of the Secretariat, which facilitates grantmaking and interactions between the Crux Policy Centers and partners.
