Mission Statement

To explore, enjoy and protect the planet. To practice and promote the responsible use of the earth's ecosystems and resources; to educate and enlist humanity to protect and restore the quality of the natural and human environment; and to use all lawful means to carry out those objectives.

Description

The Sierra Club of Hawaiʻi is a local environmental organization dedicated to empowering people to take climate action in their communities. With 50 years and counting under our belt and over 27,000 members and supporters across all of the islands, we are working together to advance climate solutions, act for justice, get outdoors, and protect Hawai‘i’s lands, water, air, and wildlife.
 The Groups part goes into more detail than businesses need so maybe its something like:  The Hawaiʻi Chapter has for regional Groups on Hawaiʻi Island, Maui, Oʻahu, and Kauaʻi that focus on County specific work. The Chapter and each Group are led by a member-elected Executive Committee. 

Program Details

The climate is changing faster than ever and the Sierra Club of Hawaiʻi is laser focused on adapting to the impacts we are already seeing and mitigating what future impacts we can. This means looking holistically at the climate change issues at hand and implementing innovative ideas to protect our islands and people from the worst effects of climate change. 
Water Security Water is vital for all life. However, climate change brings with it threats to our freshwater availability—increased droughts, storm activity, and rising seas. The Sierra Club of Hawaiʻi is advocating for the return of waters to public streams previous monopolized by sugar barons and corporations, for the removal of water diversions and better management of watersheds, and for the protection of our aquifers from pollution.

Carbon Free Hawaiʻi Hawaiʻi has committed to being carbon neutral by 2045 and the Sierra Club of Hawaiʻi is dedicated to making sure that happens. We are working to ramp down our islands’ reliance on dirty fossil fuels and completely cut our coal dependence, increase our clean energy production, all the while planting more trees to sequester the carbon already in the atmosphere.

Land Stewardship Nature-based solutions provide effective and less-intrusive mitigation and adaptation to climate change. The Sierra Club of Hawaiʻi supports projects that return nature to nature and benefit society. This means pushing for local sustainable agriculture, like permaculture and native food systems, reforestation projects that improve soil health, and preserving special open places and nearshore waters.
