HEADLINE NEWS
Corporate donors are beginning to shift their focus, from funding a wide range of projects for extended periods, to carefully selecting fewer projects that are closely aligned with their core business and are contributing to systemic social change. According to CSI and sustainability consultancy Trialogue’s 2018 corporate social investment (CSI) research, most companies (39%) had one or two flagship projects.

Ultimately, there are only two ways to improve the world – through technology and through behaviour change. The DG Murray Trust’s new publication, the Human Factor, focuses on the latter. “Far too often people are viewed as the ‘problem’ in development; through the lens of the Human Factor, we see them as development’s greatest asset,” explains DGMT CEO, David Harrison.

The announcements were made this week at the Climate Investment Funds (CIF) “The Power of 10: Shaping the Future of Climate Action” event at the Noor Ouarzazate Concentrated Solar Power Plant - the largest facility of its kind in the world - in Morocco. The summit convened over 300 climate leaders from the public and private sectors for action-oriented dialogue on fighting climate change.
