Environment

The Earth's vital signs are far from healthy. For example, huge numbers of plant and animal species are threatened with extinction. Climate change is increasing the prevalence and severity of natural disasters. And our oceans are 10 times more polluted than they were in 1980.

We believe that technology should not be in opposition to nature. Instead, it should help nature thrive and reduce the impact of human activities on the planet. To develop sustainably, we need come together and reduce humanity's collective footprint. We need to take less and give more.
