The power of the collective

Emerson Collective blends philanthropy and targeted investments to generate and sustain groundbreaking initiatives.

Our partners range from artists to scientists, educators to technologists, across the United States and around the world.

We can only manage what we can measure

The Climate Science Fair is in partnership with Speed & Scale, a global initiative to move leaders to act on the climate crisis, now. With 10 objectives and 55 key results, the Speed & Scale plan shows how we can get to net-zero emissions by 2050—and halfway there by 2030. Each of the Climate Science Fair exhibitors are working toward at least one of these impact areas.
