    The Terra Carta, a charter for change

    In sustainable markets, the economy operates in favour of people and planet while contributing to growth and prosperity. The Terra Carta is the charter that provides a roadmap to 2030 for businesses to move towards sustainable markets; one that will harness the power of Nature combined with the transformative power, innovation and resources of the private sector.

    Under the mandate of the Terra Carta, the Sustainable Markets Initiative will encourage three major market transformations:

    1. A dramatic shift in corporate strategies and operations

    2. A reformed global financial system

    3. An enabling environment that attracts investment and incentivises action
