The Climate Institute congratulates Anne Kantor on her gaining an Order of Australia in recognition of her services to the community and philanthropy.
Through her Dara Foundation, Anne Kantor was a significant and major supporter of The Climate Institute as important gains were made in Australian climate policy and as we sought to build the foundations for the next wave of advances in climate action.
That such action is now possible, with major business and community groups now sharing an objective of net zero carbon emissions or below with both major political leaders, is a testimony to the impact that philanthropic investment in advocacy can help facilitate.
Anne's commitment to ensuring vibrant and informed public discussion in Australia extends beyond climate change and The Climate Institute but that alone would have been worthy of the recognition awarded today.
