Climate Technology Initiative

The Climate Technology Initiative (CTI) is a multilateral initiative operating as an Implementing Agreement under the IEA.  Its mission is to bring countries together to foster international co-operation in the accelerated development and diffusion of climate-friendly and environmentally sound technologies and practices.

The CTI was established at the first Conference of Parties to the UNFCCC in 1995 by 23 IEA/OECD Member Countries and the European Commission.  In 2003, CTI became an Implementing Agreement. 

The CTI strives to be consistent with the objectives of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Control (UNFCCC) by fostering international cooperation for accelerated development and diffusion of climate friendly technologies and practices for all activities and greenhouse gases.

The CTI maintains a network of partnerships with non-governmental organisations, international organisations, and the private sector.
