They believe that a future with inclusive, equitable and sustainable systems for all people depends on deepening the connection between women’s rights and environmental justice. After extensive research, they have designed a grant program to address the fact that, globally, women and girls are the most vulnerable to climate change and hold the firsthand experience to solve it.

Linking these two issues not only feels like a natural next step for their company, it is essential to accelerate progress towards improving the status and rights of women and the health of our planet.
