Grants and investments

A catalyst for positive change

We manage grants, loans and investments to help increase the use of recycled materials, growing recycling capacity or overcoming specific market failures by acting as a catalyst to encourage other funders to invest.

We are the delivery partner of choice for governments and grant-awarding bodies due to our track record in awarding public money where it can make the greatest impact.

The Earthshot Prize

We are extremely proud to be a Global Alliance Partner, and to have worked closely with The Royal Foundation on the development of The Earthshot Prize.

This project will support the global effort to protect and restore the environment while also turning the current pessimism surrounding environmental issues into optimism, highlighting the ability of human ingenuity to bring about change.
