Denmark’s green think tank
CONCITO was founded in 2008. Our purpose is to provide science and knowledge based analyses and information on the most effective and cost efficient transition towards a climate-safe society in Denmark and in other parts of the world. CONCITO means "I put in motion" in Latin and that is exactly what Denmark's first green think tank wants to do on climate change. To catalyze and leverage sound knowledge and effective actions at scale. CONCITO is Denmark’s largest green network with nearly 150 companies, researchers, organisations and individuals as members of the CONCITO Council – each possessing extensive knowledge of climate change and leading in their field. The Council Members constitute the think tank and are affiliated to a number of working groups on specific topics, serving to enrich the development of new projects, analysis and dissemination projects. CONCITO is financed partly by independent foundations and project partners. CONCITO is also involved in a number of international networks with other think tanks world wide who share the same purpose and profile as CONCITO, e.g. the World Resources Institute in the U.S., ZERO in Norway and the European Climate Foundation in the Hague.
