Achieving a Sustainable Planet by 2020

The 2020 Fund is a hybrid global philanthropic and social venture investment platform. The Fund is dedicated to high-leverage investments in critical market infrastructure projects and enterprises (e.g.,, 2020 Metrics, Communications, and Advanced Technology Projects).

The Global Stakeholder Panel (GSP) Initiative

In order to build a compelling vision and action plan for achieving the future people want, we invited leaders from non-governmental organizations (NGOs), government, and business to participate in our 2020 Global Stakeholder Panel. A series of quantitative surveys of the Panel are being used to identify priorities, explore possible solutions and develop broadly supported sustainability-based action plans. At every stage, results are being widely communicated to encourage ever-greater involvement and to influence global debate and action.
