By virtue of operating in coastal deserts, Brilliant Planet’s solution offers a unique chance to actively participate in climate change solutions that operate in the Global South, bringing economic stability alongside.
Our commitment at Brilliant revolves around acknowledging the complexities of incorporating social and environmental justice into CDR efforts. Our goal is that the most vulnerable communities are economically and socially bolstered as CDR is deployed. While there isn't a one-size-fits-all blueprint, we continuously seek guidance from successful strategies employed by other sectors. Our overarching goals are centered on job creation, fostering community engagement, ensuring the equitable distribution of project advantages, managing potential drawbacks, and addressing past damages.
Unlike traditional manual labor roles common in agricultural sectors, our job opportunities veer towards technical, long-term positions. Over 95% of our workforce will be locally sourced. We take pride in training and employing a significant number of young women in these roles, pushing against the norm in conservative areas.
Central to our strategy is a philosophy of learning in partnership with the communities we work with. We believe in direct interaction with communities across all stages of our projects. This hopefully will create an environment of procedural justice, allowing for mutually beneficial solutions that truly resonate with local needs.
In terms of distributive justice, we are committed to absolute transparency regarding potential project risks and ensure that communities are a part of defining the kinds of benefits our projects should bring.
We establish formal agreements that detail the benefits as agreed upon by all stakeholders. Our tailored workforce development plan is a part of this benefit package.
