Achieving a just transition will help address issues such as inequality, poverty and hunger, all of which have been acknowledged by the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals as being some of the greatest global challenges we face.

At Earth Capital, we believe that we need to move away from profit-driven short-termism towards building sustainable industries and systems that deliver long term growth and investor profits. To achieve this, we need to rethink our time horizons and relearn the ability to meaningfully make intergenerational plans to achieve what is needed.
