Carbon Tracker is an independent financial think tank that carries out in-depth analysis on the impact of the energy transition on capital markets and the potential investment in high-cost, carbon-intensive fossil fuels.

Its team of financial market, energy and legal experts apply groundbreaking research using leading industry databases to map both risk and opportunity for investors on the path to a low-carbon future.

CubeLynx are independent advisors providing financial advice and modelling services to infrastructure, low carbon, regulated and real estate projects. Our clients include investors, banks, developers, regulators and local authorities. 

Founded on social principles CubeLynx has and will promote diversity in line with the best ESG practice. The founder set up the company following his son’s diagnosis of Autism as he became aware unemployment rates for autistic people were shockingly high at 78%. A large untapped talent pool of financial modellers exists within the Autistic community (both diagnosed and undiagnosed) and Cubelynx was created to provide those people careers and a pathway to success. We have been accredited by the Government as being a Disability Confident employer. 

“Creating a neurodiverse culture is central to the ethos at CubeLynx, who understand that employing people who think differently makes good business sense. They recognise that autistic people, in particular, can have skills and abilities suited to financial modelling, such as a logical thinking style and strong attention to detail.  Working with CubeLynx to recruit talented autistic candidates into an environment where they can thrive and progress has been a positive experience”. Employer Engagement Manager, The National Autistic Society.

ECCR’s vision is a more just and sustainable world. A registered charity, we work to encourage joined-up financial choices and campaigning actions. The money that we spend, save, invest or give away has the potential to harm or to do good.

Over the years, we’ve worked to help churches and church members have a better understanding of finance and corporate responsibility, and how they can contribute to positive change.  We’ve done this by providing research and materials for campaigning and advocacy and more recently, have run the Ethical Money Churches programme in the South West and the West Midlands to help Christians connect the dots between faith and finance.

Building on this work, we launched Money Makes Change in January 2020. The programme aims to open up these conversations further and encompasses a broad set of free resources for discussion and action, catering for people where they’re at.

Emergent is a nonprofit dedicated to accelerating the speed and scale of tropical forest conservation to combat the climate crisis.

Forests are crucial for life on earth. Protecting the world’s forests represents perhaps the greatest and most cost-effective opportunity to turn the corner on climate change over the next two decades. Nature-based solutions (NBS) have the potential to provide nearly one-third of the solution to climate change, yet NBS receive roughly 3 percent of international climate finance.

Emergent mobilizes large-scale finance for national and sub-national tropical forest and climate protection programs known as Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation, or REDD+.

Emergent connects buyers and sellers of large-scale emissions reductions from jurisdictional REDD+ programs, providing a reliable means of transacting large volumes of high-quality international forest carbon credits while helping to navigate market complexities and policy uncertainties.

Future-Fit Foundation is a UK-registered charity. Our vision is a Future-Fit Society: one which is environmentally restorative, socially just and economically inclusive. Given where we are today, this vision can only be realized through a rapid and radical shift in the way our economy works.

The Global PSSL initiative represents the most progressive and determined move towards uniting the sustainable finance ambitions of market leaders with the tenets of sustainable securities lending.

Global PSSL will advance sustainable securities lending, and the broader global sustainable finance market, through cutting edge market leadership, research and educational innovation, international collaboration, and tangible impact. Drawing on the collective experience of the initial working group, the ISLA Council for Sustainable Finance (ICSF) and broader roundtables, Global PSSL is uniting the efforts and aspirations of these groups under a globally recognised market standard.

Global PSSL is a not-for-profit, impartial and impact-driven social enterprise that provides a hub for all key stakeholders to co-create, maintain and progress this critical agenda.

Global PSSL will focus on the following objectives:

Global Market Standard: To secure recognition of the Global Principles for Sustainable Securities Lending as a global market standard for sustainable securities lending by early 2021 (following a consultation at the end of 2020).

Market Influence: Through participation and active engagement, market leaders will have a  stake in Global PSSL, allowing it to achieve genuine and positive market changes in the long term.

Global Impact: Through its interconnectedness, Global PSSL will contribute to the broader sustainable finance agenda (i.e. sustainable development goals, market liquidity, active ownership and stewardship and the community interest).

We share what we learn via open-source materials for use by any investor, to advance our vision of a world where all investments are made and measured in consideration of their integrated financial, social, and environmental impacts.

The Impact Investing Institute is an independent institute which aims to accelerate the growth and improve the effectiveness of the impact investing market in the UK and globally.

It will do this by raising awareness, addressing barriers and increasing confidence in investing with impact.

It is part of a global network of national advisory boards, grouped together in the Global Steering Group for impact investment.

It works with national governments, regulators and multilateral bodies to influence policy and advocate for impact investment.

The Impact Management Project (IMP) provides a forum for building global consensus on measuring, managing and reporting impacts on sustainability. It is relevant for enterprises and investors who want to manage environmental, social and governance (ESG) risks, as well as those who also want to contribute positively to global goals.

The IMP convenes a community of over 2,000 practitioners to share best practices, delve into technical issues and identify areas where further consensus is required in impact measurement and management. It also facilitates standard-setting organisations that, through their specific and complementary expertise, are coordinating efforts to provide comprehensive standards for measurement, management and reporting of impacts on sustainability. This includes 16 organisations that have formed a structured network to work together with the IMP’s support.

We’re going to create public demand to invest in people and planet

We’re going to help people find out where their money’s going, and we’re going to enable them to demand it does better.
