Shifting Trillions


We are living in a now-or-never moment. This next decade will be decisive in our efforts to address the climate crisis and the extinction emergency. We must make a major leap from the current extractive and exploitative fossil fuel economy to an economy that addresses the climate crisis and restores ecosystems, while decreasing socio-economic inequities. The Foundation’s three primary roles related to “Shifting Trillions” and transforming energy finance are as an investor, an active asset owner, and a thought leader in the field of philanthropy and for other asset owners and asset managers. Through active shareholder engagement and our partnership with the Sierra Club’s Fossil Free Finance Campaign, the Sierra Club Foundation is uniquely positioned to exemplify and guide how capital managers in the private and public sectors can stop financing fossil fuels and increase investment in clean energy for all.
