SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT &  AFFORDABLE CLEAN ENERGY INFRASTRUCTURE

Addressing the climate crisis requires significant investments in clean and renewable energy infrastructure, smart growth and sustainable development.

Sharing the Power Foundation contributes to causes that provide renewable energy access in vulnerable communities, promote climate resiliency and mitigation, address food inequity and transportation inequity, and causes that improve housing quality, access, and energy efficiency.  

ZERO WASTE & CIRCULAR ECONOMY

Post-consumer product waste, such as plastic pollution, is a global crisis causing public health and ecological challenges particularly for community members who reside in proximity to waste incineration, landfilling, and petrochemical extraction sites.

To promote zero waste and a circular economy, Sharing the Power Foundation contributes to causes that reduce and eliminate waste materials at the source, develop reusable materials, strengthen material recovery processes to improve the recyclability of materials through recycled content strategies, eliminate the use of toxic substances in these materials, and require producers of the materials to steward their end of life. The Foundation also contributes to causes that address food waste, promote composting access, and advocate for divestment from waste incineration and landfilling.

Toxic Chemical Exposure  

Access to clean air, water, and products is critical in stewarding healthy communities.

Sharing the Power Foundation contributes to causes that address exposures to heavy metals, air and water pollutants, and persistent organic pollutants. The Foundation also contributes to causes that advocate for the recognition of cumulative impacts.

investing in students

Diversifying the fields of sustainability and clean energy is critical to solving complex environmental challenges.

For this reason, we are making significant investments into HBCU students with a passion for environmental health, justice, and sustainability through our Foundation’s signature program, the Environmental Justice Ambassador Fellowship.

Grantee Spotlight 

Goodr

Goodr leverages technology and logistics to reduce waste and eliminate hunger. Discover how we provide organizations with solutions that create impact.

We believe that hunger isn’t a scarcity issue. It’s a matter of logistics. Goodr was founded on the simple yet powerful idea that we need to feed more and waste less. What started as a local initiative to feed people experiencing food insecurity in Atlanta has grown into a national network with long-lasting impact.
