The Equality Trust
The Equality Trust is a campaigning organisation founded in 2009 by Bill Kerry, Richard G. Wilkinson and Kate Pickett after the publication of Wilkinson and Pickett's book The Spirit Level: Why More Equal Societies Almost Always Do Better (2009). The book highlights the "pernicious effects that inequality has on societies: eroding trust, increasing anxiety and illness, (and) encouraging excessive consumption". The Equality Trust works to improve the quality of life in the UK by reducing economic and social inequality. It works with affiliated local groups across the UK and also supports a network of international equality groups and contacts working to the same ends.
The Equality Trust joined the GEC in 2017.
“We are delighted to join the GEC and support its pioneering work in mapping out the essential journey we all have to make towards a green economy”
Executive Director, The Equality Trust
“The transition to a green and fair economy is the most vital challenge facing humanity and we look forward to contributing our thoughts to the vital work of the GEC on how this can be best achieved.”
