The dual crises of climate change and inequality call for urgent, bold action. Laudes Foundation has joined the movement to accelerate the transition to a climate-positive and inclusive economy.
Our 2025 strategy
is one where global markets value all people and respect nature
is to support brave action to inspire and challenge industry to harness its power for good
Our sectors and interventions
by building capacity, supporting, scaling and amplifying advocacy efforts by partner
Scaling research and innovation
to enable adoption, monitoring and evaluation of proposed tools, models and solutions
and changing the dominant narrative around the economic system to build support for change
via funding mechanisms, including transparency, to motivate progress and enforce standards and protections
by convening partners, coalitions, networks and movements towards collaboration
By 2030 we aim
In finance and capital markets,
we see a shift in the global economic system so that every euro invested in capital markets takes into account its impact on all people and nature
In fashion, we contribute to an apparel industry which builds long-term value for business, workers, producers and nature
In the built environment, we enable an inclusive and regenerative urban built environment that prioritises decarbonisation and inspires healthy living and working spaces
Economic System Map
During the development of our five-year strategy and theory of change, we consulted 300 senior leaders, changemakers and experts to gather their insights to enable us to chart our discoveries onto a dynamic map of the global economic system. More than 130 organisations, who share our goals of mitigating climate breakdown and reducing inequality, are featured, offering a shared understanding of the economic system and how it needs to change. The map supports strategic discussions around the challenges and interconnections in the global economy and benefits a broader community.
Theory of Change
Our interactive Theory of Change illustrates how our interventions contribute to short- and long-term changes.
It guides our actions, shapes our decisions on partnerships, informs how we monitor and evaluate existing relationships, and provides a framework for impact assessment.
