Prosperity for all within one planet limits
We bring diverse perspectives together:
We see that the transition to a greener and fairer economy is already underway:
Clean energy is attracting twice as much global funding as fossil fuels (Bloomberg)
92% of the world’s 250 largest companies now measure their sustainability (Thomson Reuters)
Globally, renewables employed 8.3 m people in 2016 (IRENA)
We believe that the solution lies in five related action areas:
We understand that healthy forests, soils and rivers are the bedrock of all our economies. We are supporting companies and governments to understand the value of nature in their economic decisions.
We know that fairer economies are more resilient but they also have a smaller environmental impact. We are ensuring that this is a just transition, particularly for poor people, informal workers and marginalised communities.
Greening Economic Sectors
We see that a new industrial revolution is underway transforming our food, energy, transport and infrastructure systems. We are the champions of smaller businesses to lead the way.
Reforming Financial Systems
We know that diversifying our capital markets will make them more resilient and send the right signals to the economy. We are lobbying financial institutions to revise their mandates with environmental and social goals.
Measuring & Governing
We see that by re-wiring our institutions and reporting frameworks will allow them to see the opportunities and risks of the future. We are working to align GDP and corporate financial reporting systems with the Sustainable Development Goals.
