Climate change

According to NASA, 2020 was the hottest year on record. It’s imperative that businesses and governments work together with the support of individuals to quickly and effectively reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

In addition, natural environments that have been damaged by a warming world need to be protected and restored. Many of these environments also help to prevent global warming by absorbing carbon dioxide. Environments such as soil, oceans, and forests, and species such as corals and mangroves, are especially key.

Furthermore, it’s important to support communities that are vulnerable to the sudden, dramatic changes caused by the climate crisis, such as those with low incomes who live near the rising ocean or who already live in extreme climates.

We work with local organisations to restore and protect key environments and assist vulnerable communities with increasing their access to a range of empowering services.
