Why we use Project Drawdown

Founded in 2014, Project Drawdown®1 is a non-profit organisation that seeks to help the world reach 'drawdown' — the future point in time when levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere stop climbing and start to steadily decline. Project Drawdown’s deeply researched collection of around 90 climate change solutions, which if scaled up, can deliver the Paris Agreement’s temperature goal. The full set of solutions along with the research that backs them are publicly available on

Drawdown solutions help us to understand the role the companies we invest in can play in achieving the Paris alignment goals.

We believe the opportunities for investing to have a positive impact on climate change must be looked at in combination with other development challenges. You can see from the chart below how these go hand in hand.
