Our mission is to build the foundations of a sustainable society.

The Except Integrated Sustainability Foundation works with business, government and academia to support projects and research that contributes to fundamental, systemic improvements of our society in the long term. We directly support projects that significantly benefit the long term sustainability and resilience of life on this planet and that are generated by the Except community and its partners.
