John Deere, Pyxera Global, the Government of Nigeria, and rural Nigerian communities share a vision—to achieve a food secure and prosperous Nigeria. To translate purpose into practice, John Deere and Pyxera Global created the Rayuwa program.
We stand on the brink of a climate crisis unparalleled in history. The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) delivered a chilling fact just yesterday: a 66% likelihood of breaching the 1.5-degree Celsius global warming threshold by 2027. This critical milestone, though potentially temporary, marks an alarming first in our climate change journey.
In response to the social justice movement, we partnered with SAP on their Pro Bono for Economic Equity project. The goal was to address the disproportionately negative impact of COVID-19 on people of color. For six weeks, teams of SAP employees worked virtually with Black entrepreneurs worldwide with remarkable success.
Pyxera Global’s work is founded on the belief that inclusion and the voice of the historically marginalized communities should be front and center for any circular city. Equitable Circular Cleveland showcases the effectiveness of that method by blending Pyxera Global’s multi-sector approach and community-driven ethos with Metabolic’s science-based philosophy.
In the early 2000s, Pyxera Global began partnering with companies to design, facilitate, and measure the impact of Global Pro Bono programs. Today, more than 25 unique GPB programs help share best practices, distribute lessons learned, and to encourage innovation amongst companies across seven business sectors.
The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations (UN) estimates that one-third of the food that’s produced for human consumption globally is lost or wasted.
For Scott Mather, Managing Director and Chief Investment Officer of investment management firm PIMCO, it’s the value of that food loss and waste — about $1 trillion – that sticks in his mind, a very tangible indicator of the inefficiency of the global food value chain.
Shocks tend to expose the cracks in the system—but they can also illuminate the light that shines through
The Joint Initiative for Village Advancement (JIVA) is a holistic, demand-driven community development program co-created by the John Deere Foundation, Pyxera Global, and the communities they serve in Rajasthan, India. Growing from a pilot project area of three villages to 24 villages, JIVA’s mission is to improve the livelihoods and resilience of Indian smallholder farmers—by investing in the farmers of today and tomorrow. Its pillars—resilient agriculture, quality education, and leveraged talent from John Deere—are grounded in seven years of partnership, collaboration, learning, and adaptation.
Since the moment the novel coronavirus officially landed in Nigeria, the response from PYXERA Global’s Rayuwa program has been to ensure, as best we can, sustained program activities that build community resilience in a way that emphasizes the safety of the program’s staff and members of the community.
