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

Our vision

is one where global markets value all people and respect nature

Our mission

is to support brave action to inspire and challenge industry to harness its power for good

By 2030 we aim

to reshape ideas and redesign incentives to rebalance power
  • 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.
