Purpose and Activities

Giving primarily for projects concerning global warming, biodiversity conservation, sustainable production and consumption, and urban renewal. Across all of its program areas, the foundation favors work that has: 1) a clear path to get at root causes of entrenched problems; 2) supports groups that embrace systems thinking and strategic outcomes in their program designs, and are thoughtful and transparent collaborators; and 3) supports strategies that embolden wide-spread concern for the environment and the role of humans as caretakers of it .
