Today the greatest risk we all face is climate risk. An indisputable fact that effects every country, government, corporation and individual in the world. As the world’s governments look to tackle carbon emissions through regulated schemes, it is the private sector that is making significant progress with pledges and aspirational goals to heavily reduce emissions footprints. While still in it’s infancy, the voluntary carbon market is a driving force for advancement in how companies address their ESG goals.

In 2015, after decades of work that could be traced back to the Rio Earth Summit, the United Nations adopted the “2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development”. The agenda outlined a set of 17 goals the UN’s member states would use to frame their political, social, economic and environmental policies.
Collectively, these Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) defined a blueprint for a multi-stakeholder partnership between government, the private sector, and civil society, to address the root causes of poverty and inequality, improve health care and education, and tackle the climate emergency.
Our mission is to inspire environmental and social consciousness amongst investors and corporations alike, not simply with anecdotal evidence of climate change, but by demonstrating financial returns through the allocation of investment capital, and through innovation on financial technology as well as the new financial instruments needed to drive capital toward the achievement of the Goals.
