Right Livelihood Laureates pave the way on sustainability - we do our part by following their lead.

We are in the middle of a crisis. The world is facing enormous environmental challenges from the effects of exceeding planetary boundaries. Recent research shows that unless swift action is taken, human activity will irreversibly turn the Earth into a much less habitable place.

This has been the message of many in the Right Livelihood community, which boasts some of the earliest and most outspoken proponents of urgent climate action globally.

Through supporting Right Livelihood Laureates, we contribute to the systemic change needed to turn these dangerous trends around. We strive to reflect this work also in our day-to-day operations.
