We are specifically focusing on 5 priority footprint areas that we believe need addressing most urgently:
- Carbon, Energy & Climate
(energy use, impact of forest loss, and the need for a new global policy on climate change)
- Sustainable cities (transition of cities for sustainable development)
(food, fibre, grazing, aquaculture, and biofuels)
(over-fishing, illegal & unregulated fishing, bycatch, poor management and procurement)
(timber, paper, pulp, and fuel wood)
(dams, irrigation, and drinking supplies)
To reduce humanity's footprint in these areas, we are developing and implementing new ways of growing crops, managing fisheries, forests and wetlands, generating energy, and dealing with waste.
We are also looking at ways to transform markets
: where and how companies and their supply chains obtain and process these vital commodities.
The aim is that everyone lives within the Earth’s capacity to sustain people and nature, and has equitable access to, and use of, natural resources.
