Who we are

Laudes Foundation supports brave and bold action that inspires and challenges industry to transition to advance a green, fair, and inclusive economy.

Leveraging six generations of entrepreneurship and philanthropy, our team works through partners to address climate change, biodiversity and nature loss, and social inequality.  

We operate as an independent organisation within a wider network of philanthropic entities, uniquely positioned to learn from each other.  

Our strategy involves leveraging philanthropic influence with business acumen to accelerate the change we want to see. We believe that industry and business, when incentivised correctly, can be powerful forces for positive change.
