A healthy planet
We believe that without a healthy planet free from climate catastrophe, addressing other issues becomes increasingly difficult. As such, the core focus of The Foundation’s work is to address climate change as effectively as possible through our pillars: People, Planet and Animals.
Paul Hawken’s ‘Project Drawdown’ provides an accumulation of leading global research that highlights the most effective solutions to address climate change. By using this information, along with other research, The Foundation is able to specifically target initiatives across People, Planet and Animals that all directly and practically address climate change.
Funding for these initiatives will be targeted at both systemic and advocacy efforts, as well as grass roots projects. The specific focus areas informed by ‘Project Drawdown’ - refined to align to Australian Ethical’s core pillars - are outlined below.
