Environment and future generations portfolio
Epic has historically been committed to addressing issues affecting children and youth. We acknowledge the greatest existential threat to current and future generations is climate change and believe that our methodology can be a strong tool in this fight. In December 2022, we launched a second flagship portfolio within Epic which specifically supports nonprofits addressing environmental and climate topics!
Oceans are essential to life on Earth, producing 50% of our oxygen. Blue Ventures works to restore the world’s ocean by putting conservation at the community level. Its mission is to rebuild tropical fisheries with coastal communities so that they can manage their natural resources effectively and protect marine life.
Justdiggit addresses the effects of climate change on communities and landscapes in sub- Saharan Africa by promoting practices that lead to ecosystem restoration. They train farmers and communities how to regreen in a quick, sustainable way. This improves livelihoods, and positively impacts biodiversity and climate change.
Solar Sister empowers local women to become micro-entrepreneurs, delivering clean energy products (solar lamps, cookstoves, generators…) to last mile communities. The impact is two-fold: local women can generate income; and families are able to replace toxic and expensive kerosene and carbon emitting fuels with cheaper and cleaner renewable energy options.
