The ERM Foundation was established in 1995 to enable ERM and its employees to provide technical, fundraising and volunteer support for non-profit organizations and social enterprises that share our commitment to creating a more sustainable and equitable world. The ERM Foundation focuses on areas that align with the professional expertise and interests of ERM employees:
- Low carbon development
- Conservation and biodiversity
- Water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH)
- Environmental education
- Empowering women and girls*
This year we have undergone a process to align our activities with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), including a new focus on empowering women and girls.
The Foundation in the United States also runs a small grants program.
