ISC’s mission is to help communities around the world address environmental, economic, and social challenges to build a better future shaped and shared by all. Our programs focus on building a culture of collaboration, fostering greater equity and inclusion, transitioning to a low-emission economy, and becoming more resilient in the face of climate disruption.
We embrace equity and inclusion as a fundamental value and seek to fully embed them in our programs, institutional culture and internal practices. ISC believes in dignity, fairness and equal opportunity for all human beings. ISC understands that people who have contributed the least to the global climate and environmental crisis suffer the most from its ill-effects. And that a history of discriminatory policies and practices have significantly increased the vulnerability of many communities.
Therefore, it is essential that climate and environmental solutions that ISC implements are inclusive and equitable and focused on strengthening the most vulnerable communities. ISC actively engages with and works in partnership with frontline organizations serving the most vulnerable populations including people of color, women and people of low economic status. ISC opposes racism and discrimination in all of its forms. We strongly believe that equity and inclusion are fundamental to building healthy, prosperous, and peaceful communities.
