ECCO is the first independent Italian, non-profit climate change think tank. It was founded in 2021 with the mission to accelerate climate action in Italy and around the world.
The Italian word ‘ECCO’ contains the initials of its main themes, energy and climate change, and in Italian evokes a sense of urgency and innovation consistent with the approach we must take towards climate action.
ECCO wants to use its independence and expertise to identify transformative climate solutions. These solutions will be science-led and come with implementation strategies. ECCO will be an active agent of change, deploying strategic communication, advocacy and diplomacy. The aim is to shape climate and energy politics in all its forms.
