Hawai‘i is Home
A history rich in innovation and cultural values rooted in a sense of community make Hawai‘i the perfect place to show the world what’s possible for equitable climate solutions. Although climate change is a global challenge, action happening locally is where lofty goals become reality.
Blue Planet Foundation is a Honolulu-based 501(c)(3) committed to helping Hawai‘i cut its carbon emissions and avoid the worst impacts of climate change. We leverage the power of locally driven policy change and impactful community initiatives to create momentum and inspire change.
Blue Planet launched a decade and a half ago with a vision to end the use of carbon-based fuels, starting in Hawai‘i. Since then, our team has worked diligently to move closer to a resilient future by advocating for policy change, sharing community stories, and working directly with Hawai‘i residents to build awareness and increase access to clean energy solutions.
