Phipps is committed to promoting human and environmental well-being through action and research. Phipps is in consensus with the National Academy of Sciences position on climate change, which states that “human activities, especially the burning of fossil fuels (coal, oil, and gas), are responsible for most of the climate change currently being observed.” Nearly nine out of 10 Phipps guests surveyed in 2016 consider climate change a threat now or in the future.

As such, Phipps aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through our buildings, operations, research and programs while helping our visitors, members and neighbors to take similar steps at home and in the community. In this way, together, we can make a huge impact. Read on to learn what we're doing and what you can do to help support climate stability and make a positive environmental impact at home.
