“Improving the sustainability of communities by supporting initiatives that promote the conservation, protection and improvement of our natural environments.”

< BACK TO ALL GRANTS

Environment

The natural environment that surrounds us is not only our home, but also the source of everything that keeps us alive: from the food we eat to the water we drink and the air that we breathe. For this reason alone, we should all be working together to protect nature. Yet only a small percentage of public and private funds are dedicated to environmental causes – this is especially the case in countries such as Pakistan and India. Our global efforts to alleviate poverty, improve health and tackle other major issues will amount to very little if climate change is not urgently addressed. As such, we have made the environment one of the key focus areas for our work.

Our Impact

Staying true to our core values, we have spent the last few years ensuring that we are accomplishing what we set out to achieve over 50 years ago. At the same time, we have assessed our approach to make sure that it is still relevant to the world we are living in and the communities that we are working with. This has led us to update our strategy with clearly defined goals and objectives as outlined above. We have also implemented a robust framework that allows us to measure our performance against these objectives.

The activities of all three trusts align to create a global set of indicators which are reviewed annually against the foundation’s expenditure.
