Informing Climate Action




While climate change is a monumental issue, we believe that a strong, data-driven focus on solutions can encourage progress and action. Tableau Foundation invests in organizations working to transform the traditional climate narrative using climate data and solutions journalism to tell impactful stories about climate solutions, the positive effects on local communities, and solutions citizens should expect from institutions and governments. Our work prioritizes incorporating diverse voices into the conversation, and ensuring solutions prioritize those who have been most harmed by the effects of climate change.
