2050 Foundation aspires to contribute to a better world for our (grand) children in the year 2050. A world in which we no longer have to drain natural resources. And a place with equality of opportunity for all children.
FOR A BRIGHT FUTURE
2050 Foundation has been founded out of love. Love for nature and the people that live in it.
We believe that truly sustainable consumption is the key to a bright future, and that entrepreneurship and innovation are required to to gear this change towards a new economy.
Metrics Matter to guide entrepreneurship and innovation into the right direction. Unless based on the right (impact) data; environmental and social (company) policy is ineffective.
The strategy of 2050 Foundation is inspired by the principles of effective altruism. Our interventions are based on scientific data and we strive to maximise our counterfactual impact. This means that we will typically not engage in project that are – or could be – funded by others.
More speciJcally, 2050 Foundation seeks interventions that support others to make more sustainable decisions; thereby aspiring to create a multiplier effect.
The founder of 2050 Foundation pledged to donate the majority of his wealth to 2050 Foundation. From 2022 tot 2027, 7.8 million in (partly invested) assets have been transferred to 2050 Foundation with the intention to donate (much) more over time.
2050 Foundation does not seek external donations as its interventions are typically “high risk, high reward”. We do support and encourage other wealth owners to start their own journey towards effective altruism.
The financial reports of the foundation can be downloaded for 2018, 2019 2020 en 2021.
