Idesam's Carbon Neutral Program will offset Fundación Avina’s greenhouse gas emissions in 2019. Fundación Avina has established a partnership with Idesam’s Carbon Neutral Program in Brazil to neutralize carbon emissions generated by its operations, such as electric power consumption, air travel, accommodations, and employees’ commutes to and from work. In 2019, Fundación Avina’s emissions in Latin America totaled 431.54 tons of CO2 equivalent. This corresponds to over 1,000 trees that will be planted by Idesam in the Sustainable Development Reserve of Uatumã, in the Amazon region.
The Response and Vision Fund announces eight global initiatives to transform our global economic system in the COVID-19 crisis.
The Response and Vision Fund announced in september its inaugural slate of grantees, investing in time-sensitive, opportunistic, and strategic responses to support vulnerable workers and frontline communities bearing the brunt of the economic crisis exacerbated by COVID-19. The fund’s goals are to support workers and communities to be at the center – with voice, power and priority – in the response and recovery investments of public and private institutions alike.
As democracy in Latin America is being threatened, a new multi-donor initiative called Pulsante is seeking to fund and support those fighting to protect it. In the current state of emergency produced by the pandemic, decision-making by governments has, in some cases, significantly strained their relationships with citizens.
Forty leading global organizations have united to launch the COVID Response Alliance for Social Entrepreneurs, pooling knowledge, experience and responses to alleviate suffering and advance new models of change for a more inclusive, equitable and sustainable world.
