The Climate-Environment-Society consortium was set up in March 2007, and forms part of the 2006 review of the "2004-2012 climate plan" decided on by the French government in order to combat climate change. It is funded to the tune of eight million euros over a period of five years (2007-2012) provided by the six founding members: the French National Center for Scientific Research (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique), the French Atomic Energy Commissariat (Commissariat à l'Energie Atomique), the University of Versailles Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines, the Ecole Polytechnique, Pierre et Marie Curie University, the French Environment and Energy Management Agency (Agence de l'Environnement et de la Maîtrise de l'Energie), with the backing of the French Ministry of Higher Education and Research, and the Ministry of Ecology, Sustainable Development and Planning.
