#SustainableFinance / Morgan Stanley to address sustainability challenge through dedicated accelerator programme

Morgan Stanley is launching an accelerator programme to identify and scale breakthrough innovations focused on systemic change for sustainability.

In its first year, the Sustainable Solutions Accelerator will dole out $250,000 to each of its top five picks and provide access to Morgan Stanley’s expertise, networks and solutions… After the initial year, the innovators will become part of the Morgan Stanley Sustainable Solutions Collaborative, a coalition focused on helping solve some of the world’s most pressing sustainability challenges.

[Morgan Stanley:] “Whether the challenge is climate change, social justice or plastic waste reduction, we cannot drive global, systemic change if we persist in business-as-usual thinking… Now is the time to support holistic solutions that will become the next frontier in sustainable investing.”
