Funding the Future: Interactive Peer Lesson Session. How the Fondation Daniel & Nina Carasso promotes climate change mitigation initiatives through its strategy.

8 December, 4-5 PM (CET)

From its beginnings in 2010, the family foundation, that was established in memory of Danone founder Daniel Carasso and his wife Nina, has been promoting sustainable food and access to the arts, in France and Spain. Following a process to realign the foundation’s work under a common vision of a more sustainable, just and equitable world, the foundation has incorporated climate-related issues throughout their programmes, one of the focus areas being the transition to agro-ecological practices. The foundation has also decarbonised its investments and places a share of its capital into climate-related impact investments. 

On December 8th, Marie-Stéphane Maradeix, Executive Director of the Fondation Daniel & Nina Carasso, will share the foundation’s journey and experience in climate action and discuss insights and learnings that could be useful for foundations interested to get started in climate philanthropy.

This event is co-hosted by Dafne and Active Philanthropy and will be held in English. Find out more here.
