Forum for the Future, U.S.
We are an independent non-profit who work globally with business and government to inspire new thinking, build creative partnerships and develop practical solutions.
At Forum for the Future, we are passionate about creating a brighter, more sustainable future for everyone.
We are an independent non-profit who work globally with business and government to inspire new thinking, build creative partnerships and develop practical solutions. We share what we’ve learned so that others can benefit – and act.
Working with pioneering partners, we transform the essential systems of food, energy and finance to secure a more fulfilling life for us and future generations.
Over the past 15 years, Forum for the Future has:
- changed the debate about sustainable business by highlighting the opportunities it offers, and been instrumental in altering the way leading companies operate – from Aviva to Unilever;
- trained thousands of leaders, across society, through our master classes and Masters Program, so they are knowledgeable about sustainable development and equipped to face the global challenges like climate change and shortages of vital resources;
- promoted long-term thinking and created shared, positive visions of tomorrow with businesses, government and NGOs, through our ground-breaking futures and scenarios work;
- sparked innovation of new products, services and business models that will make our world more sustainable.
However, in spite of our achievements and in spite of overwhelming scientific evidence, the challenge of increasing well-being within environmental limits is more acute than ever. Tackling global problems through small or isolated initiatives just won’t deliver change at a speed or on a scale we need.
We now want to transform the complex systems which serve our fundamental needs – such as food, energy and finance – so that they are fit for the 21st Century. And to do this, we are putting ‘systems innovation’ at the heart of our new strategy.
