We are committed to a comprehensive approach to climate-related content that educates and informs people with accurate information while addressing misinformation.

We take any misinformation on our platforms seriously, which is why we partner with our industry-leading network of nearly 100 independent, third-party fact-checking organizations to review and rate climate-related content in more than 60 languages.

Educating and informing about climate change

Meta has an essential role to play during a global crisis in connecting people to accurate, expert information. That’s why we’re using a number of tools, campaigns and partnerships to help educate and inform people about the realities of climate change. 

We believe that critical and complex challenges like the climate crisis require solutions that help educate and inform people with accurate information. We aim to do this responsibly by protecting freedom of expression, engaging and funding research, and prioritizing transparency and user engagement to inform our approach.

We have a responsibility to tackle climate misinformation on our services, which is why we partner with more than 90 independent fact-checking organizations globally to review and rate content, including content about climate change.

How we are operating

Our comprehensive approach to addressing climate change misinformation is made possible by our network of nearly 100 independent, third-party fact-checking organizations certified through the non-partisan International Fact-Checking Network (IFCN), or in Europe the European Fact-Checking Standards Network. Fact-checkers independently review and rate content in more than 60 languages, based on Meta’s rating guidelines.

What we are creating

Leveraging the capabilities of our platform, we are accelerating our work to increase access to authoritative climate information across our family of apps. Learn more about our approach to product innovation here.

  • Launched in 2020, the Climate Science Center (CSC) aims to increase access to authoritative climate information from the world’s leading climate science sources and experts. Last year, we expanded CSC reach to more than 100 countries, attracted more than 3.8 million followers, and served more than 100,000 daily visitors.
  • The Climate Misinformation Grant program, administered by the International Fact Checking Network, supported organizations working to combat climate misinformation. Through our $1 million investment in this grant program, we invested in proposals that built alliances between fact-checkers, climate experts and other organizations to support projects that focused on combating climate misinformation.
  • The Sustainability Media Academy, created in partnership with EB Impact, is an initiative for seasoned and aspiring journalists in the Asia region, designed to help them better understand sustainability and sustainable development issues and develop expertise and authority to produce content.
