About Forum
Forum for the Future is an independent, international non-profit with a purpose to accelerate systems change for a just and regenerative future. We have a 25 year track record in partnering with pioneering companies who recognize that social and environmental issues are already shaping their business context today, and want to actively create the conditions for their future success. In addition to working with these organisations one on one, we bring companies, NGOs, government representatives and others together to create action-oriented coalitions on particularly urgent and complex sustainability challenges. Examples include The Protein Challenge 2040, designed to contribute towards a goal of feeding up to 10 billion people with sustainable protein in the future; Cotton 2040, which is working to mainstream sustainable cotton; and the Responsible Energy Initiative which is supporting market actors in the energy system to ensure the production and deployment of renewable energy is ecologically safe and socially just. As a charity, we publicly share our learnings from this work through communications, events, and our School of System Change.

Forum has offices in London, New York, Mumbai and Singapore. We are a multicultural team of 80+ people and we operate as a global team, delivering both international and local projects.
