A number of organisations have partnered with us on our journey and we are grateful for their ongoing support and guidance.

 HSBC's Water Programme

The HSBC Water Programme funds Global Action Plan's Water Explorer schools programme. The support from the HSBC Water Programme has enabled GAP to expand our schools programmes and deliver significant impact on a truly international scale.

The Mark Leonard Trust

The Mark Leonard Trust, part of the Sainsbury Family Charitable Trusts, is providing financial and strategic support to Global Action Plan over the next five years. The Trust works with us to identify obstacles and opportunities and provides external strategic advice that helps us to develop and improve.

The Esmee Fairbairn Foundation and Venturesome

The Esmee Fairbairn Foundation and Venturesome have provided groundbreaking quasi-equity funding for Global Action Plan. They have provided development capital and, in return, they receive a revenue share on some of our activities. They also provide us with strategic guidance to help maximize returns.


Ignite provides investment in the Catalyst programme at GAP, so that we can train unemployed young people to deliver our vital energy efficiency work. They have also seconded a Talent Manager to GAP in 2014-16 . They’re the UK’s first impact investment fund that focuses on energy, helping individuals and organisations to fulfil their potential in building a better society.
