CBF Issues Statement on Green 2.0 Report Card

Green 2.0 released its Seventh Annual NGO & Foundation Transparency Report Card today. The organization’s report shows diversity and inclusion data from environmental NGOs and foundations. Green 2.0 is a nonprofit organization working to increase racial and ethnic diversity among environmental organizations.

The Chesapeake Bay Foundation (CBF) is one of the organizations that provided data for the Green 2.0 Survey based on 2022 data. 

Carmera Thomas-Wilhite, CBF’s Vice President for Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Justice, issued the following statement.

“For too long, CBF and many other environmental organizations have not fully represented our region’s great diversity. Across the Bay watershed, pollution and climate change continue to disproportionately harm our most vulnerable communities. 

“We all deserve clean air, clean water, and a healthy environment. For Bay restoration to succeed, people have to be at the center of our work. CBF is committed to working toward diversity, equity, inclusion, and environmental justice. 

“There is a continued need for diversity and inclusivity across all levels at environmental organizations to support transformational change and relevancy of organizations for future success.”
