Our current projects

Green+ Gilt

We want to increase the flow of public and private capital to address environmental and social challenges. Those capital flows are vital in achieving the transition to a net-zero carbon world, which should be inclusive and socially beneficial – a concept commonly referred to as a ‘just transition’.

Pensions with impact

We want to make it easier for pension schemes to invest with impact and support them in reducing negative impacts and risks like carbon emissions, biodiversity loss, poor governance and inequality that arise from their portfolio, something many pension schemes are keen to do.

Impact investing Learning Framework and Hub

We want to increase competency in impact investing so more investors incorporate impact into their work and investment decisions. Lack of knowledge about impact investing remains one of the main reasons for people not to consider impact in their financial decision-making process.

Place-based impact investing

Championing impact investing that drives positive outcomes in underinvested places around the UK.

Sustainability Reporting Standard for Social Housing

We want to make it easier for lenders and investors to assess Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) performance of housing providers and identify ESG risks as well as opportunities to create positive social and environmental outcomes.

Opportunities for impact investing in emerging markets

We are producing an evidence base for institutional investors of impact investments across asset classes and geographies.
