Anker Beneficiary Raises $1.5M at NYC Event

In recent years, Anker Innovations has taken steps to reduce its impact on the planet through its Environmental, Social, and Governance program.

Oceania is one of the organizations the company has supported, so it’s fantastic to learn that the nonprofit raised $1.5 million toward its goal to save the oceans.

Record-breaking ocean temperatures, greater loss of species to extinction and a growing number of starving people in the world – all of these issues point to climate change as the cause.
