Sustainable Living

Some of the challenges we face

The UK has a target to reduce carbon emissions by 80% by 2050

The UK still sends c. 50m tonnes of waste to landfill per year

Emissions from buildings account for c.40% of UK GHG emissions

Livestock production accounts for over 14% of global GHG emission

How are we helping to solve this problem?

Across our funds, our Sustainable Living investments have been addressing challenges like these by trying to divert waste from landfill; by promoting a more sustainable approach to food and farming; by refurbishing buildings to make them more energy-efficient; and more.

Oliver Wyncoll, Bridges Partners, explains how we are helping to reduce waste in the UK with our partner, World of Books >>
