Time for humankind 
to grow up.

For a living planet. For generations.

The Allianz Foundation is actively advocating for a climate-neutral world. Our goal is to identify and support transformative and fair climate protection projects and strengthen their leading effects.

Through the Paris Climate Accord the earth’s countries have committed to keep the planet habitable for future generations and limit the increase in global warming to 1.5 degrees above pre-industrial levels. In fact, today the increase has already reached 1.2 degrees – mainly caused by the massive use of fossil fuels. This is why “business as usual” is not an option. The window of opportunity when an irreversible global warming can still be halted is closing rapidly. We need practical solutions that lead to real change and increase everyone’s awareness for the tasks we face. These solutions must keep in mind the close connection between climate protection and biodiversity. The one cannot be reached without the other.

With the European Green Deal, the EU has set the goal of becoming the first climate neutral continent by 2050. That this transition must be socially just is also stated explicitly. However, the success of the Green Deal is endangered by populists looking for ways to instrumentalize atmospheres of social discontent engendered by, for example, rising energy prices. Increasing nationalism and lacking international exchange represent risks for the environment and climate protection – and with it a present and future that is just in terms of opportunities.

The transformation to climate neutrality must not leave anyone behind – neither people nor regions nor ecosystems. The Allianz Foundation is working at the interface of these challenges facing our planet, our societies, and every single person. Together with our partners, we want to strengthen a socially fair transformation and open debates that include unconventional figures. We support the European civil society in its fight for ambitious climate protection. These are decisive factors towards a climate neutral world.
