Collaborative systems change

Our thought leadership work aims to achieve systems change in finance, thereby driving better outcomes for people and planet. We have developed a theory and practice of change around systemic issues that reach beyond mainstream sustainability.

The Finance Innovation Lab

The Finance Innovation Lab connects people who are changing the financial system, develops them as leaders and helps them scale their work. 

Its purpose is to empower positive disruptors in the financial system. 

The Lab works with:
  • Entrepreneurs creating alternative business models in finance
  • Civil society leaders advocating for financial reform
  • “Intrapreneurs” in mainstream finance re-purposing their professions
The Lab was founded by WWF-UK and ICAEW in 2009. In 2015, the Lab became independent from WWF-UK and ICAEW, so it could scale its impact. 

Both organisations continue to support The Lab through significant funding, strategic oversight as Trustees and through ongoing collaboration with The Lab on projects of mutual strategic interest.
