Sustainability

When our planet is healthy, ecosystems maintain their natural balance and all life is able to benefit. Yet currently, both on land and in the oceans, we are living through an unprecedented period of environmental crisis, one that is threatening our very existence.

In 2020, the Sobrato Philanthropies team launched an initial portfolio to support greater environmental health, focused on the oceans, and in 2021, followed with a portfolio focused on mitigating climate change. Through this body of work, we seek to support a healthier planet that is able to sustain and support the communities, livelihoods, and lives that depend on it.
