Christie’s will waive all fees and commissions for the auction. Native Energy, a leader in carbon offsetting, will provide carbon offsets for the entire Green Auction.  NBC Universal, as part of its ongoing environmental initiative, “Green is Universal,” will serve as the official media partner for the event.  Advertising firm MMB, as Christie’s branding partner, created  A Bid to Save the Earth as the unifying theme for this worthwhile and groundbreaking initiative.

logo-nrdc-smWe are inspired and honored to convene top members of the philanthropic, environmental, business and cultural communities to benefit the environment,” said Edward Dolman, CEO of Christie’s.  “We are equally pleased to present a stellar evening auction and to partner with NBC Universal in telling this exciting story with Charitybuzz in building such a compelling silent auction; and of course our four charity partners, who will do what they do best with the proceeds:  advocate for the environment.

The Evening Sale will be a star-studded event with top celebrities serving on the Green Auction Host Committee that includes: Leonardo DiCaprio, Harrison Ford, Tobey Maguire, François-Henri Pinault, Salma Hayek, Bob Fisher, Candice Bergen, Ed Norton, Evelyn Lauder, Alec Baldwin, Zaha Hadid, Brooke Shields, and Matt Lauer.

logo-oceana-smIt is becoming increasingly clear that our wellbeing as individuals and as a global society hinges on nature.  With pressure mounting on our shared home, Earth, innovative fundraising strategies are more important than ever.  This particular initiative will use the knowledge and resources of a world class auction house to raise much needed funds which will go directly towards the maintenance and protection of the ecosystems, habitats and species that are the framework of a healthy planet where all people can prosper” said Peter Seligmann, CEO and Board Chairman of Conservation International.

During its annual “Earth Week” of environmentally themed coverage, NBCU will use its vast portfolio of both on-air and online media assets to raise “green awareness,” promoting environmental messages and “A Bid to Save the Earth” campaign’s call to action. A wide array of talent will participate throughout the week across NBCU brands including Bravo, USA Network, Oxygen, TODAY Show, Access Hollywood, MSNBC, CNBC, iVillage and local media.

We are proud to be the media partner for such a worthy cause,” said Lauren Zalaznick, President of NBC Universal’s Women & Lifestyle Entertainment Networks, who oversees ‘Green is Universal.’  “Our core mission is to raise awareness and activate consumers to positively impact the environment.  On the 40th anniversary of Earth Day, it couldn’t be a better time to mobilize the NBCU assets to provide maximum exposure, and help drive support for these environmental organizations.”

Top collectors on the Host Committee include a who’s-who of philanthropists, artists, environmentalists, and media from all over the world. Christie’s is serving as the global catalyst in bringing all of these vibrant communities together to benefit one end: the environment.  Luminaries such as:  Susan and David Rockefeller, Jr., David de Rothschild, Anna and Graydon Carter, Brian Williams, Caryn and Jeff Zucker, and Kelly and Ron Meyer are just a few of the dignitaries who will be participating in this unprecedented event.

“We are pleased to be part of this extraordinary partnership that is bringing together some of the world’s most well-respected environmental groups,” said Frances Beinecke, president of the Natural Resources Defense Council.  “By working together, we strengthen the chorus of voices advancing a sustainable vision for our planet and our future.”

The live auction will include major works from artists including Keith Tyson, Maya Lin, Subodh Gupta, and Olafur Eliasson.  Other lots will include coveted celebrity experiences, upscale eco-vacations and exquisite jewelry.  Hugh Jackman, Christina Aguilera, and Candice Bergen are just a few of the talented stars offering VIP experiences, with additional luxury items secured daily.

Christie’s Green Auction will set a new standard in cooperation between commercial and not-for-profit organizations.  Christie’s is in a unique position to serve as a bridge between the past and the future by linking these many spheres of influence in a revolutionary way.

The Central Park Conservancy is thrilled to join this initiative that allows us to highlight our unique model of public/private partnerships and helps us continue to invest in our efforts to green this urban landscape.  The attention and money raised will not only go toward enhancing one of the world’s greatest parks and one of New York City’s most vital resources, but will enable us to continue to set the standard for management of green spaces in urban areas everywhere,” said Douglas Blonsky, President of Central Park Conservancy.

In addition to bidding in the Green Auction, the public is invited to make a symbolic bid for the environment leading up to Earth Day this April 22. Simply visit A Bid to Save the Earth and select from one of four areas in order to participate in this Call-To Action: Donate, Volunteer, Educate or Green your routine.

Oceana is proud and honored to join Christie’s as part of the Green Auction. It is going to be a groundbreaking, important and impactful event.  The funds we raise will help us to win more victories on behalf of the world’s oceans all over the world.  Shining such a bright spotlight on the need to save our oceans will help to save them by getting more people informed and, ultimately, involved.” — Andrew F. Sharpless, CEO of Oceana.

“Deutsche Bank Climate Change Advisors is honored to be the lead sponsor for the inaugural Green Auction. As a global leader in climate change investment and research, we have long recognized the business imperative of addressing environmental issues. This event is an unprecedented collaboration between commercial and not-for-profit organizations and we look forward to making a lasting contribution to business involvement in finding solutions to the climate change problem.” — Kevin Parker, Global Head of Deutsche Asset Management (DeAM) and member of Deutsche Bank’s Group Executive Committee.

The Christie’s Green Auction companion silent auction will use online bidding powered by Charitybuzz, launching at A Bid to Save the Earth on April 8, and run through May 6.  The silent auction will facilitate global participation like Christie’s LIVE, and carry more moderately priced lots.

Lots for the sale on silent auction will include celebrity packages such as spending a day with Hugh Jackman on the set of his movie “Reel Steel’, VIP tickets to a Christina Aguilera concert, a Californification set visit with David Duchovny, falconry lessons with Bobby Kennedy, and lunch with a major television star.

We anticipate The Green Auction to be a momentous achievement in fundraising to save the earth, and we are excited to help Christie’s reach thousands of online bidders through Charitybuzz” said Coppy Holzman, CEO of Charitybuzz.

Barneys New York partnered with sustainable fashion brand Loomstate to create a series of 100% certified organic cotton T-shirts inspired by the NBC peacock feathers. Priced at $40.00 in honor of the 40th anniversary of Earth Day, the T-shirt will be available for sale beginning in April and a percentage of all proceeds will benefit the environment via the four not-for-profits in the Green Auction.
