DiCaprio, Jobs and Sheth form non-profit “Earth Alliance” to battle against climate change and biodiversity loss on Earth.
Earth Alliance utilizes the massive resources of philanthropists to provide grants, assistance to grassroots organizations, funding for new films and campaigns, and work with individuals to address the issue of climate change and biodiversity loss on Earth.
"Launched in response to a growing climate crisis and staggering loss of biodiversity threatening the stability of life on Earth, the Alliance marks a shared commitment to addressing these intertwined threats," states Earth Alliance.
“Today marks the next step in the evolution of LDF as it fully merges under the new Earth Alliance management and grant-making framework. Laurene and Brian are incredible civic leaders who share my passion and understanding of the urgency and scale of the challenges we face,” states DiCaprio.
Powell Jobs claims that “Earth Alliance is part of our answer.” Powell Jobs remains confident that the Alliance will help the trio do more to protect the planet.
The Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation will be folded into Earth Alliance. The Alliance will bring together the best minds on conservation, science and philanthropy to respond to the climate crisis. The Alliance will focus on protecting wildlife and ecosystems, climate justice and offer support for renewable forms of energy.
