We stand for the Planet

SAFE Worldwide is committed to doing our part to work on environmental issues that will help promote the health of our planet and its inhabitants.

We dedicate this page to all the species that need a healthy planet to survive and thrive. 

Facts + Figures


Wildlife Impacted

Over 700 species on the Endangered Species List are already affected by the warming of the planet.

Ocean are warming

Our oceans will see increases in water temperature, higher levels of acidity and changes in oxygen levels, by the year 2060.

CO2 Emissions

5 regions (China, United States, European Community, Russia and India) make up 59.2% of all greenhouse emissions (2018)

Extreme weather

There were 14 global weather events (tornados, floods, fires, droughts) in 2018 with cost of over $1 billion in damages.

Heatwaves worsening

The number of days over 100'F will double around the world within the next two decades

The cost of inaction

Costs from damages for action on climate change by 2100 to be $8 trillion, while with inaction, it will be around $20 trillion

Impact of climate change on the Arctic

Polar bears are one of the species most impacted by climate change. They hunt, mate and rest on the sea ice, which makes them highly vulnerable  to a warming planet.  The Arctic is most affected by global warming and it is not expected to slow down, even with the latests commitments made from the world’s largest CO2 emitter countries, the top ones being China, the Unites States, Russia, India and Brazil.  

If more is not done soon, some scientist have concluded that the Arctic could be ice free in summers by 2050, which will impact the species’ chances of survival for the future.

More Facts + Figures

The Sea Ice in Decline

The annual sea ice minimum in the Arctic has decreased 13% per decade since 1979.

Impact on Coral Reefs

Climate change causes long lasting impacts on coral reefs, like mass bleaching events, disease outbreaks and decreased growth rates.

Diminishing Crops

Abnormal temperatures force wild plants and crops to bloom before insects can migrate to pollinate them

More Facts + Figures

Nature is part of the answer

Tropical forests are incredibly effective at storing carbon, providing at least a third of the mitigation action needed to prevent the worst climate change scenarios.

Shrinking Ice sheets

Greenland lost an average of 279 billion tons of ice per year between 1993 and 2019, while Antarctica lost about 148 billion tons of ice per year.

Sea Level Rise

Global sea level rose about 8 inches (20 cm) in the last century. The rate in the last two decades is nearly double that of the last century.
