FMF’s Climate Change Focus

Frederick Mulder Foundation believes that climate change is the single greatest threat facing mankind, and we believe that our biggest task as a Foundation is to do what we can to help limit global warming to below 2° relative to pre-industrial levels.

Climate change is a big field and many aspects of our lives must change if we are to avert a crisis: government policy, public education, the behaviour of financial markets and our treatment of the natural world. We have chosen three areas to focus on: work on financial markets to hasten the development of a low carbon economy; work to strengthen natural climate solutions; and support for public activism to secure policy change.

As well as comprising a significant portion of our grant-making, approximately one third of our endowment will be devoted to impact investments in the renewables and energy efficient sector.
