Create locally focused circular economies

Invest in a regenerative economy

Finance can be a force for good if invested wisely. Be part of the movement to use investing as a way to regenerate the planet.

When we invest our money, we’re making an active decision to put money into an asset with the hope of generating an outcome. In many cases this outcome is profit, i.e. to increase money, but you can also invest in other things in the hope they will generate a specific outcome. Things like the education of girls or the regeneration of eco-systems. There is also the opportunity to get both a great outcome and some profit.

The world economy is currently geared towards degeneration,but by shifting our money and being conscious of what impact that money is having, we can start investing in a regenerative economy. The world of business and economy listens to the language of money and where it is going so there is an opportunity for us to create enormous change by how we invest.

There are a number of organisations now very focused on addressing how we can invest our money ethically and in regenerative ways..

If you have money to manage or invest regeneratively consider some of the following groups.
