Climate Accountability

Climate Accountability

On December 1, 2021, the Pan American Development Foundation (PADF) joined the Climate Accountability in Development (CAD) collective, a group of international development organizations committed to charting a new path forward for climate accountability in the development sector.

As members of CAD, PADF is committed to measuring our greenhouse gas emissions each year starting off with a baseline of our emissions from fiscal year 2019. PADF will reduce its greenhouse gas emissions 30% by 2030, based on our 2019 baseline. We are committed to ensuring that all our near-term reduction targets align with the Paris Climate Agreement and prevent the atmosphere from warming above 1.5 degrees Celsius from pre-industrial levels.

PADF’s forthcoming Climate Action Plan, which is scheduled for adoption in July 2022, will outline our eight-year roadmap for emissions reductions in line with science-based emissions reduction targets.

PADF's Green Team

PADF launched a Green Team, a working group of colleagues representing seven of our offices across Latin America and the Caribbean, multiple departments, and various levels of seniority within PADF. The Green Team holds regular meetings to research and draft the PADF Climate Action Plan.
