JOIN THE INVESTORS’ MOVEMENT THAT WILL CHANGE THE WORLD

The Climate Crisis is the biggest challenge that mankind has ever faced.

We have launched the Parents Pledge campaign! Click here to find out more and join the movement to change the investment world.  

Our Mission

To make it normal and easy for individuals to give to climate projects regularly in proportion to their wealth. 

Governments are at last taking some steps to address the climate crisis. This is welcome, but it is not enough.
The scale of the emergency is such that current perceptions about separating investments from decisions about giving need to be challenged. We think that many people understand this and that the time is right for a new approach. We need to focus on saving the future, not just saving for the future.
Individuals own about $140 trillion in savings and investments globally.
Our goal is to get people to donate a quarter of a percent (0.25%) of their savings and investments annually to projects that tackle climate change.

That could be as much as $350 billion every year!

The Current Situation

Worldwide, less than 3% of private donations go to environmental causes.

There is no easy way for people to donate automatically from their investment portfolios and pensions.

There are many charities doing amazing work to tackle climate change all over the world.

Our Plan

STAGE 1: We have launched our campaign appealing directly to individuals to join us and make the Parents Pledge. The Parents Pledge is a promise to make an annual donation of one quarter of one percent (0.25%) of savings and investment assets to climate change projects. We have suggested a group of recommended projects. Donors can follow our recommendations or choose their own projects.

STAGE 2: We will continue to gather Pledges and use this pressure to convince financial institutions to offer an easy regular donation option to all their clients. In June 2019 nearly 500 financial institutions wrote to the G20 urging them to take stronger action on climate change. We, along with many of their clients, will ask these institutions to take stronger action themselves by providing this option.
STAGE 3: We will work with governments and regulators to allow individuals to donate from their pensions. The mobilisation of global savings is a necessary part of the solution to the climate crisis. We will develop match funding schemes and other forms of government sponsorship and non-financial support.
