Scaling up impact. A guide for collective action

Publication by Forum for the Future and the Shell Foundation

Our current methods for shifting complex global problems are not effective. We need far more ambitious approaches if we are to achieve sustainability or end poverty. This guide offers practical guidance for collective action – a method by which we can drive scale of impact, through a deliberate approach to market-based solutions.

The guide shares findings from the first phase of our Scaling Up Impact work, a collaboration between Forum for the Future and Shell Foundation, that has involved more than 150 organisations from around the world interested in having a greater impact on the world’s challenges.

This guide is for practitioners, teams and organisations whose mission, remit or interest is in driving change across whole systems and transforming the associated markets, to scale up impact on sustainability and development challenges. This includes businesses, trusts, foundations, NGOs, collaborative initiatives and platforms, and governmental and intergovernmental agencies.
