Community business at the heart of meaningful & inclusive climate action.

We are putting the climate and nature crisis at the forefront and heart of every single decision that Power to Change makes.

We believe this will help to deliver on our vision and mission of strengthening community businesses so that they can play a leading role in a fair and rapid transition and in creating resilient places. We also believe it is the right thing to do as a charitable funder in the midst of this crisis and a decisive decade of action.

We will use our platform to advocate for wider, systemic change and the role of community business in this.
