The role of philanthropy

Philanthropy has a vital role to play in solving the climate crisis. 

The independence and financial freedom of philanthropy, and its ability to fund outside of election cycles, means philanthropy has fortified some of the most critical climate interventions in Australia. 

Increasing strategic private sector and philanthropic investment in climate action is central. There is value in government and philanthropy working in partnership to solve difficult climate issues. However, philanthropic funding cannot be seen as an alternative to government funding and strong climate and environmental regulation.
