Guided by rigorous research and data analysis, we work with partners to implement on-the-ground projects and mobilize diverse coalitions to put the world on a more sustainable path.
Our projects span from advising mayors on how to design city streets to working with restaurant chains to reduce food waste to mobilizing global initiatives that advance climate action, create a sustainable ocean economy and halt tropical deforestation. We have dozens of active projects in more than 50 countries.
As part of our “Count it, Change it, Scale it” approach, we work with partners to mobilize commissions and major global initiatives. These delivery platforms allow us to create large-scale change and lasting impact.
