The work we do at The Global Transformation Foundation is imbued with the values shared by our founder, board and team members:
We believe that all people have the capacity to change themselves, their organisations and their communities for the better.
We believe that innovation and collaboration in thought and in action leads to positive and enduring change. We believe that games and healthy competition are compatible with the spirit of collaboration.
We believe that integrity of purpose and action is essential to everything that we do.
We believe that engagement with private and public organisations and the adoption of commercial disciplines are critical to maximizing impact and financial sustainability.
We believe that young people need to be heard, seen, engaged, consulted and listened to. And that they should be involved in decisions about the world that they will inherit.
And we believe that each one of us has the moral responsibility to do the absolute best that we can.
Good governance is important to everyone involved. The Board and advisors of the Global Transformation Foundation is structured to provide the necessary advisory and/or supervisory framework and involve people of the highest integrity, experience and knowledge all contributing their time pro bono.
Sustainable by Design
We have a negligible carbon footprint. We work with high energy but consume very little electrical energy. We generate little waste. We are a lean, clean, green sustainable organization.
Our Foundation is committed to contributing to a new social, environmental and economic system driven by the power and inclusivity of impact investing. By harnessing capital and innovation to solve social and environmental issues through our involvement with Impact Entertainment Media, we aim to have a lasting and systemic impact on our planet and societies. We strive to make a transformative difference by supporting impactful initiatives dedicated to generating solutions.
The Foundation’s position on business
Many people are unsure if business is part of the problem or part of the solution. Today, that is understandable. At present there are many businesses in each camp. At the Global Transformation Foundation, we believe the world needs business now more than ever. We need good companies that give more to society than they take out. And this number is growing.
If we want a clean energy revolution, to feed growing populations sustainably, to find bio-substitutes for plastic and affordable medicines, then we need the engine of business. We need their innovation, organising power, know-how and the scale and resources of business.
This Foundation believes more and more companies are becoming, and want to become, engines for positive change. And we want to work closely with them.
