By using the best evidence and insight, we can identify key partners and organisations who can help drive our safety message into key areas of research, business and government.
By 2050, there will be two billion more people living on the planet than there are today. This will inevitably put a huge amount of strain on our critical infrastructure and supply chains.
The UN sustainable development goals were created as an urgent call for action for all countries to help ensure we can provide for an increasing population effectively.
However without being safe, you cannot be sustainable. How can we ensure safety is considered as critical by decision makers around the world when planning for a sustainable future?
Our Foresight Review of Resilience Engineering highlighted that the Foundation’s efforts in the sustainable infrastructure space should focus on:
- Governance: encourage better incentives, standards and rules to facilitate sustainable infrastructure
- Capacity building and engagement: support professional development, publications, communication and public engagement
- Data and supporting tools: open access to shared datasets, modelling and simulation and decision support
- International and global scale networks: expand studies of global systems, supply chains and knowledge networks in sustainability spaces.
Some key organisations we’re working include The World Bank, The Economist, United Nations Global Compact, Arup and The High-Level Climate Champions.
Safety for a sustainable future
We focus on areas where we can harness our unique strengths and assets to enhance the safety of a sustainable future.
