Cate Blanchett is an activist for many environment causes.
Ambassador for the Australian Conservation Foundation, she was a spokesperson with its “Who on Earth Cares” program. She also campaigned for a carbon tax aimed at big industries in Australia, encouraging them to cut back on emissions.
As co-artistic director of the Sydney Theater Company, the actress was key proponents of Greening the Wharf, a project that oversaw 1,900 solar panels being installed in The Wharf Theatre at Sydney’s Walsh Bay. This now provides 70 percent of the theater’s electricity requirements and, together with a system for rainwater harvesting, will eventually turn it fully carbon neutral. Under her guidance, the theater also started reusing and recycling costumes and props.
