The Carbon-OFF plan - a climate action guide for philanthropic organisations

How can philanthropic organisations make sure they’re acting in line with their ethical founding principles and contributing to climate progress? In this introductory guide, Scientists for Global Responsibility (SGR) shows how such institutions can protect the climate in three key ways – by cutting the carbon footprint of their own operations, by divesting their finances from fossil fuels, and by influencing the organisations they fund. Together, the three arms of this ‘Carbon-OFF plan’ will minimise your contribution to greenhouse gas emissions and the heating of the planet as far as possible.
