Press Release – LOS ANGELES, CA (September 26, 2017) – Rainforest Action Network (RAN) has appointed Ibrahim AlHusseini to its Board of Directors.
Ibrahim AlHusseini is a humanitarian and investor dedicated to financing companies that implement market ready solutions to our greatest social and environment challenges. He is Managing Partner of FullCycle Energy LP and The Husseini Fund. As founder and Managing Partner of FullCycle Energy, he is dedicated to addressing our growing global waste crisis and financing projects that convert our costly environmental problem into clean, valuable fuel to power communities around the world. In addition, The Husseini Group has over a decade of funding ventures that embrace social enhancement and ecological sustainability with numerous notable holdings.
“I am pleased to join the Board of Directors at Rainforest Action Network. I will be joining a group of individuals who are equally dedicated to making this world a cleaner and better place, which is incredibly important to me,” said AlHusseini. “Our climate crisis is serious and Rainforest Action Network is an effective and innovative activist organization whose members understand this, in addition to the fact that clean energy is the next technological and economic frontier.”
Equally passionate about gender equality and the arts, AlHusseini supports several NGOs advancing social and cultural change in societies that adversely impact women and girls. In addition to RAN, Alhusseini serves on the boards of Synova Power, Cornerstone Capital, The Culture Project, The Global Partnership for Women and Girls and The Biomimicry Institute.
Established in 1985, Rainforest Action Network fights for people and the planet by working at the intersection of three core issues: preserving rainforests, protecting the climate, and upholding human rights. And, unlike other organizations, RAN achieves this by focusing on corporate accountability. RAN’s work challenges corporate power and systemic injustice by targeting the companies and industries that act as the greatest drivers of deforestation and climate change. RAN also has a long history of partnering with and directly supporting frontline communities who feel the greatest impact of climate change and deforestation — and who frequently hold the best strategies to protect our planet and our climate.
