How we select the best not-for-profit climate solutions

The goal of our selection method is to identify organizations that: 

  • are the most effective in key sectors of climate change mitigation
  • have scalable operations
  • have strong governance
  • address problems that have no realistic market solutions

All organizations we look at have to undergo a detailed review by our Due Diligence Panel. Our evaluation process builds on several existing and well-respected methodologies.

The long list of organizations is established through a combination of desk-based research and recommendations from our network.

Organizations are then screened for a range of factors including governance, financial stability, scalability, innovation, and, very importantly, impact.

Organizations that pass the screening test are required to submit a detailed Due Diligence Questionnaire and provide financial and other information. This process, together with interviews with our staff and Trustees, results in each organization being given a final “score” using a multi-factor scale.

Successful candidates are then presented to the Due Diligence Panel for approval. Charity partners also must sign a Grant Making Agreement in accordance with our Grant Making Policy before final inclusion. Only the highest scoring charities are added to our portfolio as Climate Solutions.
