ABSTRACT
This article focuses on a report from New Philanthropy Capital (NPC), which revealed that less than two percent of total charitable grants in Great Britain is directed to environmental charities and less than five percent of private donations in Great Britain are allotted to environmental causes. According to NPC, donors would like to give more, however, they lack information about charities working in the area. Aside from climate change, another pressing issue in the country is the exploitation of natural resources. Director of Research Martin Brookes stressed that donors should consider funding charities that are tackling the range of environmental issues.
