The Centre for Research on Energy and Clean Air (CREA) is an independent research organisation focused on revealing the trends, causes, and health impacts, as well as the solutions to air pollution. We use scientific data, research and evidence to support the efforts of governments, companies and campaigning organisations worldwide in their efforts to move towards clean energy and clean air.
In addition to air pollution and climate change, global reliance on burning fossil fuels also perpetuates conflict and energy insecurity. The Centre for Research on Energy and Clean Air (CREA) is therefore identifying fossil fuel exports from Russia and effective economic and financial countermeasures against Russia to help end the Russian military’s unprovoked and unjustified attack against the sovereign nation of Ukraine, which CREA absolutely condemns as a violation of the fundamental values of human wellbeing, safety, and dignity that CREA seeks to advance.
We believe that effective research and communication are the keys to successful policies, investment decisions and advocacy efforts. Our data and insights are regularly picked up by major media outlets (e.g. Financial Times, The Economist, BBC) and used by policymakers and organisations in dozens of countries.
CREA is a fully remote organisation, with current team members based in Europe and Asia.
