For all of human history until about 200 years ago, our atmosphere contained 275 parts per million (ppm) of carbon dioxide (CO2). 350ppm is the safe upper limit for CO2 in our atmosphere. Currently we are above the safe zone at 390ppm.

David Suzuki Foundation
Since 1990, the David Suzuki Foundation has worked to find ways for society to live in balance with the natural world that sustains us. Focusing on four program areas – oceans and sustainable fishing, climate change and clean energy, sustainability, and the Nature Challenge - the Foundation uses science and education to promote solutions that conserve nature and help achieve sustainability within a generation.
Given our rich natural assets and the strong environmental values, Canada should be a world leader in sustainability. However, in a recent study comparing the environmental performance of Canada to other developed countries, we finished 29th out of 30. The Foundation’s report, Sustainability within a Generation, is a map to put Canada on the path to sustainability by the year 2030. To achieve this goal we work with different levels of government, business leaders, academics and the public to ensure that Canada adopts policies that reward activities that reduce waste and pollution, conserve energy and resources and protect our natural capital while maintaining our quality of life.
