Environmental Communications and Advocacy. The Foundation engages in environmental communications and advocacy based on existing knowledge, as well as in the generation of new knowledge. The Foundation also funds other approaches to positively affect practices and behavior.
Regarding current priorities, the KR Foundation supports divest-invest, i.e. divesting from fossil fuel and re-investing in sustainability. This initiative aims to persuade investors to divest from fossil fuel industries that deepen the climate crisis, and to invest instead in climate solutions. In parallel with divest-invest, the KR Foundation supports measures that eliminate subsidies for fossil fuels.
Additionally, the Foundation will consider proposals in other subject areas related to its overall mission and focus.
Grants are to charitable nonprofit organizations. The amount of funding per project typically ranges from DKK 0.5 million to DKK 5 million.
