Climate and Environment Transition Fund: Accelerating Our Transition Towards Greener and Climate-Smart Operations

The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) has been protecting and assisting people affected by war and other violence for over 160 years. Now that the changing climate is creating a humanitarian crisis – putting ever more people in desperate situations – we have a duty to prevent, prepare for and respond to climate and environmental risks and impacts in our work. We need to rapidly transition to a climate-smart, adaptable and more sustainable organization. The ICRC’s Climate and Environment Transition Fund is key to achieving that transition.
