Climate Initiatives: Graphic showing icons of assorted green technologies held in upraised hands

The USPTO is working to incentivize innovation and widen access to the intellectual property system for inventions and technologies that effectively address climate change. Our climate-related initiatives help efforts to secure an equitable economic future and align with and support Executive Order 14008, which calls for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and achieving net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.
