Together, we can solve the climate crisis.

Our optimism is fueled by groundbreaking science, the power of community-led action, and the game-changing potential of climate philanthropy across One Earth's three pillars of action.

ENERGY TRANSITION

A just transition to 100% renewable energy can be achieved today with widely available technologies, and it will result in a system that is far less expensive than business as usual, creating millions of good long-term jobs, avoiding billions in annual fossil fuel costs, and preventing trillions in climate damages. The energy transition is already underway, but we need to triple investments in energy efficiency and renewable energy deployment and phase out fossil fuel subsidies by 2025.

NATURE CONSERVATION

In order to reverse the biodiversity loss crisis and stabilize the Earth’s climate system, we must protect and conserve 50% of the world’s lands and seas. Remaining land habitats store nearly 2 trillion tonnes of carbon and absorb one-quarter of annual CO2 emissions. Expanding Indigenous land rights is essential, alongside a moratorium on deforestation and a global effort to restore 350 million hectares of forests on degraded land, providing the necessary carbon removal to achieve the 1.5°C goal.

REGENERATIVE AGRICULTURE

Through regenerative agricultural practices, which increase both soil fertility and carbon storage, we can achieve net zero food and fiber systems globally. Concurrently, we must cut meat consumption and food loss in half, reduce the use of chemical fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides, diversify crops, and invest in smallholder farms. By doing so, we can feed ten billion people by mid-century while greatly reducing agricultural emissions – carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide -- and improving human nutrition.

It’s time to radically increase climate philanthropy. Less than 2% of all charitable giving goes to nonprofits working to solve the twin crises of biodiversity loss and climate change. One Earth is working with an array of partners to triple the volume of giving, driving dollars to critically underfunded projects on every continent. Through our Project Marketplace, individuals and companies can directly support vetted climate solutions, helping to create a world where all people and nature thrive together.

Our unique approach: Philanthro-activism

We believe that everyone, everywhere, can be a climate philanthropist. Whether you are a volunteer, a small-dollar donor, or a major benefactor, we all have a pivotal role to play in pushing for solutions that can be implemented today, supporting individuals and communities working to solve the climate crisis. Through One Earth’s three programs — Science, Philanthropy, and Media — we directly support the climate heroes who drive change where it’s needed most.

We have awarded $6.6 million in grants in total.
