Who we are

We're working to unleash the positive potential of the investment system.

Our vision is a world where the financial system serves our people and its planet.

We work to define the highest standards for responsible investment and to drive change until these standards are adopted worldwide.

Our history

ShareAction started life as a campaign that worked with People & Planet, where we helped Britain’s largest pension scheme adopt a responsible investment policy. Since then, we have expanded to campaign on the most pressing issues facing the world today. We’ve driven change at the heart of the financial system, shaped public policy and built a diverse movement of savers and investors for responsible investment.

Our history

Our team

We wouldn’t be where we are today without our team of dedicated, passionate and courageous individuals. Committed to promoting responsible investment, our small, skilled team work to achieve our mission of a financial system that works for our planet and its people.
