Fondazione De Agostini signs the "Declaration of Commitment" on climate change promoted by Assifero

Fondazione De Agostini has signed the "Declaration of Commitment" promoted by Assifero – Italian Association of Foundations and Philanthropic Bodies – on climate change and is committed to adopt the six key principles to integrate mitigation and adaptation actions to the climate crisis in its organization, strategy, management, and activities, in full respect of its nature, autonomy and mission.
The climate crisis is not only an environmental problem, but also an educational, economic, scientific, and cultural issue that gets people safety and local communities at risk as well.
It is one of the most important challenges of our times, which has to be faced systemically to protect the future and contain the injustices that can derive from it.
Foundations, charitable organizations and social impact investors can represent a actual global movement of philanthropy for the climate by signing the Declaration and engaging with concrete actions to: promote and create opportunities for training and exchange on the causes and possible solutions to challenging climate change; allocate financial, intellectual, relational and material resources to research the causes and solutions to the climate change challenge and its effects; reread its strategy and ongoing activities also through the lens of the climate; promote a choice of responsible investments; decrease the environmental impact of their organization; inform about the evolution and the results achieved regarding the principles subscribed in the Declaration of Commitment.
