About Climate Solutions Accelerator of the Genesee-Finger Lakes Region

Location:

758 South Ave, ROCHESTER, NY 14620, US

Mission Statement

To create a healthier, more equitable, and environmentally sustainable community by catalyzing local efforts to eliminate greenhouse gas emissions and address the effects of climate change.

Description

The Climate Solutions Accelerator is an inclusive, nonpartisan 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to inspiring and facilitating a large-scale climate mobilization in the nine-county Genesee-Finger Lakes Region.

In the weeks leading up to the 2014 People’s Climate March, more than 30 local organizations joined together to demand action on climate change and form the Rochester People’s Climate Coalition (RPCC). Following the march, representatives from member organizations worked together to define the Coalition’s mission, goals, and structure. For six years, the organization operated as RPCC, with a focus on organizing collaborative efforts to address climate change in the nine-county Genesee-Finger Lakes Region. Initially all-volunteer led, RPCC became a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in 2017 and hired its first staff person in 2018, to support the coalition’s rapid growth and increasing activity.

In 2020, the organization changed its name and look to reflect its critical role in launching and accelerating efforts to address climate change throughout the nine-county Genesee-Finger Lakes Region. With a growing staff, Board of Directors, and wide ranging group of member and partner organizations, the Climate Solutions Accelerator uses its wealth of experience and energy to galvanize high-impact climate action at the local level.
