OUR WORK

The Earth is warming at an unprecedented rate. Efforts to reduce greenhouse gasses have yet to successfully reduce absolute levels in the atmosphere. We're working to increase Earth's reflectivity to reduce global warming as soon as possible. Reflectivity, also known as albedo, significantly influences how much incoming solar heat is retained by our planet. Reflectivity can change fast enough to make a difference.

POLICY & ADVOCACY

We're promoting education, research, and advocacy to accelerate increased reflectivity. We are broadening awareness through a series of online tools, round-tables and policy and science briefs on the opportunities to slow global warming via albedo increase.

MAN-MADE SURFACES

We're helping to scale citizen-led efforts to make man made surfaces more reflective, with an emphasis on low-latitude places where the impact is most significant. We are starting with a mobile app that allows people all over the world to document and to be rewarded for making their roofs more reflective and helping to cool the planet.

A MORE REFLECTIVE ATMOSPHERE

We're exploring ways to increase reflectivity in the atmosphere. While solar radiation management shows promise in academic research, RE is working with partners on ways to make it real, safe, and sustainable.
