A sustainable future is fundamental to our vision for Australia. Environmental sustainability is one of the Sidney Myer Fund and The Myer Foundation’s five core values while addressing climate change is one of the two abiding themes of the current (FY19–23) strategic plan.
Our philanthropy is informed by the UN Sustainable Development Goals and we recognise the imperative of the UN Paris Agreement and the IPCC special report to limit global warming to at least 1.5 degrees and achieve net zero emissions by 2050, and the urgent action required by 2030 to achieve this target. Greater ambition, and a plan for action, is crucial to meeting global climate goals this decade.
Environmental sustainability is the remit of The Myer Foundation, which is pursuing a suite of strategies – a portfolio approach – to advance our commitment to this critical area. Grantmaking supports organisations taking discrete but complementary approaches to affecting systemic change, as well as direct action through the investment of The Myer Foundation’s own financial resources.
