Climate change and pollution harm our environment and negatively impact people’s lives globally, particularly those in less-developed countries. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) predicts that up to 14% of the world’s species will be threatened through extinction by only 1.5 degrees Celsius of global warming.

Unchecked harmful resource extraction and environmental degradation are exacerbated by corruption and weak governance. As consumers demand more eco-friendly products, companies resort to “greenwashing” – falsely marketing themselves as environmentally friendly while their operations continue to harm the planet.
