Co-owners of The Wonderful Company – makers of Fiji Water- Stewart and Lynda Resnick, have pledged 750-million-dollars toward climate change research. The donation will be made to the California Institute of Technology.
In a statement, Stewart Resnick said, “In order to comprehensively manage the climate crisis, we need breakthrough innovations, the kind that will only be possible through significant investment in university research.
Science and bold creativity must unite to address the most pressing challenges facing energy, water, and sustainability”.
The university plans to use the donation to build a seventy-five-thousand square foot building that will be called the Resnick Sustainability Research Center. The center will have advanced teaching laboratories in addition to operating as a research hub.
