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 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—along with many other Harvard organizations and individuals concerned with the environment—collaborates closely with the Harvard University Center for the Environment (HUCE). The Center has provided generous material support, and a number of HUCE’s Environmental Fellows and Visiting Scholars have made intellectual contributions to HEEP.

HEEP and the closely-affiliated Harvard Project on Climate Agreements are grateful for additional support from the Harvard University Climate Change Solutions Fund; the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs and the Ash Center for Democratic Governance and Innovation—both located at the Harvard Kennedy School; Christopher P. Kaneb (Harvard AB 1990); and the International Emissions Trading Association (IETA).

Previous sponsors include: the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, the AVINA Foundation, Bank of America, Castleton Commodities International LLC, ClimateWorks Foundation, Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, the James M. and Cathleen D. Stone Foundation, the National Science Foundation, the U.S. Department of Energy, and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

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.
