Overview
The Fossil Fuel Reduction project is a multi-funder and multi-year project of the New Venture Fund. Its purpose is to reduce the impacts on people, wildlife, water, soil, and air from the development of unconventional types of oil. The extraction and processing of unconventional oils in North America have high carbon intensity and other environmental and human impacts. To ensure that atmospheric concentrations of carbon not exceed 450 parts per million, about two-thirds of oil reserves should be kept in the ground.

Grants to this Grantee
for support of The League  
This grant will support The League, which uses narrative and culture change campaigns to create a cultural environment supportive of reproductive rights and justice. Using audience segmentation developed through a rigorous research process that resulted in "Story at Scale", they will reach "persuadable" groups with targeted campaigns designed to shift their perspectives and support of issues related to gender justice, including reproductive rights. (Substrategy: Advocacy)
for the Evergreen Collaborative  
This grant supports the Evergreen Collaborative: a new initiative to elevate the urgency and positive opportunities of bold climate action. The collaborative’s work will focus initially on policies to drive new public investment and strong regulatory standards that advance climate solutions. This work is informed by the current economic crisis triggered by global pandemic, trade wars over oil, and the failure to invest in American infrastructure and a strong social safety net. (Substrategy: U.S. National Policy)
