WASHINGTON, D.C. - The Pew Center on Global Climate Change has been named the world's top environmental think tank in a global survey of hundreds of scholars and experts conducted by researchers at the University of Pennsylvania. The survey results are published in the 2009 Global Go To Think Tank Rankings, the fourth edition of an annual report from the Think Tanks and Civil Societies Program at Penn. The Pew Center also ranked 23rd among all U.S. think tanks.

The Penn study, also called the Think Tank Index, evaluated 6,305 organizations in 169 countries across six continents. The rankings process included a 298-person expert panel that nominated and ranked 392 organizations. The panel included international scholars who study think tanks, executives and scholars from think tanks, public and private donors, and policymakers.

"It is an honor to be recognized by such an esteemed panel," said Pew Center President Eileen Claussen. "We have always aspired to deliver reliable, accessible, and relevant material to advance the complex and politically polarizing climate change debate. This ranking is a testament to the dedication of the Pew Center staff who demonstrate that providing credible information and straight answers is a formula for success."

Through objective, independent analysis, the Pew Center helps enable policymakers and the public make informed decisions about climate change and clean energy policies. To this end, the Pew Center has published well over 100 reports and policy briefs on topics including climate science, economics, low-carbon technologies, and policy options to inform the U.S. and international climate and clean energy debate.

To help create a broader understanding of climate change policy implications, the Pew Center regularly convenes government officials, business leaders, academic experts, media, and other key stakeholders. Through briefings, workshops, conferences, and interviews, the Pew Center's experts share critical insights and explore different pathways to answer challenging climate change policy questions. This work also involves the Pew Center's Business Environmental Leadership Council (BELC), the largest U.S.-based association of corporations focused on addressing the challenges of climate change.

The environment think tank rankings were among 24 categories covered in the study that rated think tanks by global region, research area, and special achievement. The Pew Center did not participate in any part of the rankings process.

The Pew Center was established in May 1998 as a non-profit, non-partisan, and independent organization dedicated to providing credible information, straight answers, and innovative solutions in the effort to address global climate change. The Pew Center is led by Eileen Claussen, the former U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for Oceans and International Environmental and Scientific Affairs.
