Australian Policy Change

Our Research

Why Australian Policy Change?

Fighting the climate crisis requires systemic change that can only be achieved through government policy. We believe that the most effective giving opportunities for donors are organisations working to enact systemic policy change. Australia is the world’s largest coal exporter, so pushing for more ambitious policy here is critical for the global fight against climate change.

We focus on organisations that are directly working to change Australian policy, through legislation, executive action, and regulation. We have considered organisations that use “insider” tactics such as research and policy drafting, “outsider” tactics such as grassroots activism, and communication designed to “change the story” around climate change in Australia such that climate policy is not linked to economic sacrifice. All recommended Australian policy organisations have DGR status.

We currently recommend three policy change organisations: Beyond Zero EmissionsFarmers for Climate Action, Original Power.
