Addressing the root causes of climate change
Humanity is facing unprecedented risks caused by climate change and environmental degradation. The unsustainable production and consumption patterns of modern societies, and especially the dependency on fossil fuels, is changing our climate and damaging our eco-systems at an extraordinary scale and pace. KR Foundation seeks to tackle these challenges through four areas of work:
Keeping fossil fuels in the ground
Extraction, production, and consumption of fossil fuels are the primary causes of climate change and environmental degradation.
Mainstreaming low-emission living
Most societies consume way more resources than the planet can regenerate.
Climate change communication is pivotal to creating public support for impactful policies, bringing about large scale behavioural change and galvanising new movements.Read more

KR Foundation in Denmark
In 2021, KR Foundation expanded its grant making in Denmark and is currently funding civil society organisations working to accelerate the green transition. We primarily focus on projects that aim to increase public engagement and advance new economic thinking. We collaborate with other Danish foundations to support these agendas and help accelerate ambitious climate action.
