Valhalla’s goal is to reduce the damage that methane and greenhouse gas accelerants do to our climate and to reduce the number of deaths and illnesses from pollutants, particularly air pollutants.
Valhalla Foundation funds efforts to improve the measurements of emissions and pollutants, identify their source, and catalyze action to remove or reduce those sources’ negative impact.
Our primary grants in this area have been to the Environmental Defense Fund (EDF).
We have given to EDF initiatives aiming to better measure and reduce methane, and to initiatives aiming to better measure and improve air quality. Valhalla has also supported EDF’s China Program over the past several decades, which has contributed to significant progress in China’s climate policies, as stated in China’s five-year plans.
Valhalla Foundation is not actively looking for new environmental innovation grantees.
