The Enel Endowment for Environmental Economics at Harvard University provides major support for HEEP. The endowment was established in February 2007 by a generous capital gift from Enel, SpA, a progressive Italian corporation involved in energy production worldwide. Read about the gift in the Harvard Gazette. HEEP receives additional support from the affiliated Enel Foundation.

HEEP is also funded by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, the James M. and Cathleen D. Stone Foundation, Bank of America, BP, Chevron Services Company, Duke Energy Corporation, and Shell. HEEP enjoys an institutional home in and support from the Mossavar-Rahmani Center for Business and Government at Harvard Kennedy School. As its name suggests, the Center is concerned with the interaction of the public and private sectors, including with regard to environmental issues.

HEEP and the closely-affiliated Harvard Project on Climate Agreements are grateful for additional support from the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs at the Harvard Kennedy School, ClimateWorks Foundation, and Christopher P. Kaneb (Harvard AB 1990).

The Harvard Project on Climate Agreements is grateful to the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, which provided major funding during the period July 2007–December 2010. Previous sponsors also include the AVINA Foundation, the National Science Foundation, the U.S. Department of Energy, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and Paul Josefowitz (Harvard AB 1974, MBA 1977) and Nicholas Josefowitz (Harvard AB 2005).


The International Policy Network

Greater interaction between firms and NGOs, from around the world, and the Harvard Environmental Economics Program provides opportunities to access cutting-edge analysis and to advance policy-relevant research. The Harvard Environmental Economics Program has established its International Policy Network as a means to enhance two-way communications between businesses and NGOs, on the one hand, and, on the other hand, a leading center for research on and analysis of environmental policy.
