About this funder:
The Merck Family Fund was established in 1954 by George W. Merck, President of Merck & Co., Inc. He created the fund for two principal reasons: to do good with the resources acquired through the company’s success, and to create an opportunity to regularly bring family members together.
Restore and protect the natural environment and ensure a healthy planet for generations to come.
Strengthen the social fabric and the physical landscape of the urban community.
Program: Reducing CO2 Emissions Through Energy Efficiency and Carbon Pricing
Without a price on carbon emissions, the cheapest and fastest way to reduce greenhouse gas emissions is through energy efficiency. The Fund’s strategy is to support efficiency policies and implementation efforts in the Northeast and Southeast. In the long run, it is still essential that a price be paid for carbon emissions. The Fund will therefore support the development of political and economic drivers at the state and federal level to establish or expand carbon pricing mechanisms.
Specifically, the Fund welcomes proposals that:
Advocate for residential and commercial codes and standards that result in measurable energy efficiencies.
Demonstrate financing models that create affordable capital for investments in efficiency.
Provide incentives or mandates that result in utility-based efficiency programs.
Engender bi-partisan study, design and acceptance of carbon pricing alternatives.
