We are on the verge of extinction, but we don’t seem to realize it. To date, Earth has witnessed five mass extinctions, and all five have been caused by natural geological changes. The sixth mass extinction will be the result of human activity alone. Without immediate action, the consequences of global warming will become irreversible.


Energy Positive Cities and Global Cooling

To meet the 2050 net-zero emission goals, CREST Foundation intends to create energy-positive communities that produce clean energy from renewable resources and facilitate zero maintenance and zero waste living.

60% of the world’s population will live in cities by 2030. Buildings consume a lot of energy and, together with the construction industry, contribute to 40% of the world’s carbon dioxide emissions. As wildfires, hurricanes, and other dramatic climatic events become the norm, establishing baseline data to track climate change becomes vital.

Today, it’s easier and more convenient for people to work and live in air-conditioned homes and offices. These closed-door living situations increase exposure to indoor air pollutants, which is unhealthy in the long run.

When plants transpire, they cool the air around and beneath them. Increasing herbal forest density and clean energy reliance facilitates global cooling. Cooling temperatures reduce wildfire footprints and air conditioner dependence in the summer months. When fewer chlorofluorocarbons are released and more carbon monoxide is absorbed, the planet goes into a virtuous cycle of global cooling.


CREST Foundation is on a mission to build 20 self-sufficient Climate Hubs over the next ten years. Each Climate Hub will consist of 600 eco-homes, 500 acres of organic farms, food forests, and herbal gardens, an organic shopping market, corporate offices, green schools, a sports and entertainment village featuring 64 varieties of sports, a community kitchen, and a preventive care and wellness health centre

Our practical approach is neither theoretical nor challenging to implement. The Foundation’s first publication, Blue Dharma, is a playbook of sustainable practices that have successfully powered the creation of the world’s first energy-positive, water-positive, and collective organic farming community.

Today, it’s easier and more convenient for people to work and live in air-conditioned homes and offices. These closed-door living situations increase exposure to indoor air pollutants, which is unhealthy in the long run.

We have the proof of concept to build carbon-pollution-free communities that promote sustainable living (without compromising on the perks of modern lifestyles) and revive natural ecosystems while combating the most urgent changes of the climate crisis.


Human Wellbeing Can Save the Planet

CREST Foundation will create climate-resilient eco-habitats that combine the luxuries of modern life with the benefits of living in nature. These energy-efficient homes will usher in a new age of climate adaptation and resilience, providing residents access to safe drinking water, fresh air, and farm fresh witnessed organic food

Over the last decade, many mega cities have transformed into urban heat islands. City residents breathe polluted air, continuous exposure to which can lead to a dip in immunity and a surge in respiratory illnesses

Planted palettes of oxygenating trees clean and cool the air by accelerating the absorption of greenhouse gases from the atmosphere. Cultivating agroforestry and herb gardens provides witnessed organic farm-fresh food and helps bring back biodiversity to urbanized areas.

Implementing mechanical ventilation techniques in mixed use and residential developments improves ventilation, thereby improving indoor air quality


Supply Chains and Carbon Footprints

CREST Foundation aims to reduce the global carbon footprint by establishing Climate Hubs. CREST Foundation will transform the global agricultural landscape by nurturing forest ecosystems and agroforestry, investing in sustainable agricultural research facilities, promoting innovations in nutritional security, and fuelling sustained economic growth.

Processed foods and global food supply chains have large carbon footprints. Produce that’s farmed with fertilizers and pesticides has a longer shelf-life but is of lower nutritional value. Consuming food with additives and preservatives is harmful, and organic food products remain expensive to produce and consume.

By relying more on local farms, circular bio-economies become less vulnerable to global supply chain breakdowns. In bio-economies, food is managed in innovative ways. Food waste is converted back into energy and excess food is funneled into organic food processing plants.
