ACT For Environment

Home|ACT For Environment
India contributes 2.4 billion tonnes to global carbon emissions every year; a figure that’s expected to rise by 12.6%. By 2030, 40% of India’s population will lack access to clean drinking water; over 600 million people are already facing water shortages. 1/3rd of India’s land mass is under irreparable degradation; a result of human-induced actions which is causing its biodiversity, soil fertility and overall health to decline.

We’re living in a time where averting our eyes from the climate crisis is not an option anymore. Climate action at scale needs innovation that can help create a cleaner and greener environment as a way to rebuild our world.

Our Thesis

ACT For Environment aims to catalyze climate action through innovations to achieve net zero carbon emissions, water security and land rejuvenation.

The 100 Cr ACT environment fund will accelerate the capabilities of non-profit as well as for-profit organizations working on climate impact by working on the market adoption and mainstreaming of marketed tested innovations that have a measurable environmental benefit.
