Business update

May 2012


What does Rio+20 mean for business?

Rio from 20-22 June – is a key moment for international debate on a ‘green economy’.  We’re working with business to build support for integrated reporting (combining financial and sustainability corporate information) and stretched targets (such as committing to deforestation-free supply chains by 2020). 

We’re also creating a ‘Decoupling Club’ that’ll showcase companies’ commitments to grow their business without increasing their environmental impacts, as Unilever has done. To find out more or to get involved, contact us.


Join our new energy campaign

We’re launching our energy campaign against the background of worrying signals from the Government that it's losing interest in its energy commitments by reducing its ambition for the Green Deal, and by supporting fossil fuels. We plan to get the UK back on track to be a global leader in renewable technology. See what we thought about Cameron's latest remarks, and get in touch to join the push on renewables.


Assess your water risk with our unique tool

Our easy-to-use tool is the first to quantify water-related risks for all industries in all countries.


We’re working with Coca-Cola in Great Britain

Our new three-year partnership will help drive the beverage sector towards greater responsibility for water stewardship – an area where Coca-Cola is leading. It will also secure a thriving future for English rivers.


The Finance Innovation Lab lauded as ‘new radical’

The Lab, which is striving to create a financial system that sustains people and planet, was acclaimed in the Observer’s list of ‘New Radicals’ - 50 projects that are shaping Britain’s future.
