Explore how the companies in our strategies are contributing to sustainable development

We focus on understanding the contributions individual companies make to sustainable development. We believe that qualitative assessments are as important as quantitative measures and understanding the real-world impact that companies have and the challenges they face requires context and nuance, which are best expressed in stories rather than sustainability scores that often conceal more than they reveal.

This interactive tool tells the sustainable development stories of the companies we invest in across our strategies, and the contribution companies are making towards climate solutions, human development or the Sustainable Development Goals. The tool can filter, tap and switch between views in order to explore the different ways in which we believe the companies are making the world a better place.

We have mapped our companies’ contributions to Project Drawdown’s 80 climate change solutions. Project Drawdown is a non-profit organisation that has identified and thoroughly researched the economic, technological and social changes the world can use to reach ‘drawdown’ – i.e. the point in time when levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere stop climbing and start to decline. Click on a solution to learn about it, and on individual companies to explore how they are contributing.

*Impact captured in other solutions.
