THE RIGOUR OF FUND MANAGEMENT

Like fund managers, the Global Returns Project rigorously evaluates our Portfolio and expects real, identifiable returns.

But this is not an investment fund. Not-for-profit organisations do not generate wealth –they help to protect it by directly regenerating the planet. Instead of delivering financial returns, they deliver ‘Global Returns’. That’s our term for the direct regeneration of the biosphere.

Contributing to the Global Returns Portfolio – as an individual, asset manager or business – delivers reliable and well-reported results. Those who contribute receive detailed six-monthly impact reports.

THE FUNDAMENTAL SDGs

Among the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), four ‘Fundamental SDGs’ underpin all the others. Failing to achieve them would leave the other 13 impossible to achieve. The Global Returns Portfolio addresses three of these four Fundamental – or Environmental – SDGs associated with enhancing and protecting the biosphere.

  • SDG 13: CLIMATE ACTION
  • SDG 14: LIFE BELOW WATER
  • SDG 15: LIFE ON LAND

SDG 13
CLIMATE ACTION

Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts.

SDG 14
LIFE BELOW WATER

Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development.

SDG 15 LIFE ON LAND
