Center for Clean Air Policy
The Center for Clean Air Policy (CCAP) is a Washington, DC based think tank, started in 1985, that's concerned with climate and air quality policy. Its website states, "CCAP helps policy-makers around the world develop, promote and implement innovative, market-based solutions to major climate, air quality and energy problems that balance both environmental and economic interests."
The Center's website itself is not specific about who provides funding. It only says "CCAP is funded by several diverse sources, such as private foundations, U.S. federal, state, local, and international governments, individual donors and corporations."
Some accomplishments it claims:
- Playing a major role in passage of the landmark U.S. SO2 trading program in the 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments
- Crafting the original design for the European Union's Emissions Trading System (EU ETS)
- Helping lead development of the NOx reduction and trading program in the eastern U.S.
- Developing comprehensive climate policy strategy for New York state, which directly led to the successful creation of Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI)
- Convening three U.S. utilities to successfully finance the retrofitting of a coal-fired plant to natural gas in the Czech Republic
- Producing the original design rules with key international stakeholders for the Clean Development Mechanism, adopted as the Marrakech Accords, which allowed countries to proceed toward ratification of the Kyoto Protocol
