Friends Provident Foundation, as an initiator of the Foundation Practice Rating (FPR), is proud of the impact it is having in our sector. We all need to improve in the three pillars of accountability, transparency, and diversity.
Why does it appear that the economy is failing to meet humanity’s and our planet’s needs? This was a question we pondered as we began work on Rethinking Economics’ new book Reclaiming Economics for Future Generations. It focuses on the need to diversify, decolonise and democratise economics to help address global crises that we face, such as poverty, inequality and the climate crisis.
Friends Provident Foundation is an independent charity that makes grants and uses its endowment towards a fair and sustainable economic system that serves society. We connect, fund, invest and share learning to shape an economy that works for all. Our current economic system produces inequality, environmental degradation and undermines our relationships with one another. It shouldn’t have to be that way.
