Badar started his involvement in D&I efforts in 2010 by serving on the Houston Advisory Council of the Tahirih Justice Center, a non-profit organization protecting immigrant women and girls fleeing gender-based violence and persecution. His company, National Grid, led efforts to make environmental justice a significant policy focus on decarbonizing energy supply, transport, and heating by ensuring disadvantaged communities of color gain equitable access to the benefits of the clean energy transition. Furthermore, he advocated for organizations like Browning the Green Space, a group of leaders and organizations whose goal is to increase the participation of people of color in the clean energy sector. In April 2021, he was invited to become a Founders Circle member of the British Asian Trust, founded by the Prince of Wales to tackle poverty, inequality, and injustice in South Asia.
