In 2022, these organisations made a commitment to improved transparency, recognising the need to go further and faster on diversity and inclusion.
Unfortunately, minoritised communities in the UK are used to slow progress on equity and diversity in the workplace. I’m heartened that RACE Report will provide transparency and a means for ongoing frank discussions about the pace of change in the sector. We will soon find out which organisations are prepared to do the hard work that comes with genuine transformation, versus those which are only comfortable with change when it’s reserved to Instagram posts.

It is a breath of fresh air to see this much needed report come to fruition. For several years, I’ve not only read the statistics, but also felt it working within the sustainability industry as a British Indian woman. RACE Report will create space to bring change where, currently, many people of colour face injustices on a daily basis. South Asians for Sustainability are delighted to be a part of this crucial initiative.

Transparency and accountability are necessary to advancing climate justice. The RACE report has the potential catalyse a step-change in the environmental movement, to meaningfully break down the barriers that have historically excluded People of Colour from climate campaigning.
Jason Palmer, Diversity and Inclusion Manager, Friends of the Earth
Action for Conservation is delighted to support the RACE Report as a crucial tool in working towards an environmental sector that reflects and is strengthened by the diversity of society as a whole. The RACE Report will increase transparency and ambition among organisations that are serious about this goal.
Hendrikus van Hensbergen, CEO, and Laura Kravac, Head of Programmes
Real change on racial equality in the environmental sector is long overdue. To get there we need transparency and accountability on where we are. I welcome the RACE report as a mechanism to do that.
