July 2015 – This report analyses the role of insurance regulation in protecting the basic human rights of life, livelihood and shelter against natural hazards and climate risk. Effective insurance regulation facilitates access to insurance (both traditional and alternative) as a means to increase communities’ resilience, fulfil related human rights duties of state and non-state actors and support the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

Effective regulation for mutual and co-operative insurers can help protect human rights against natural hazards
May 2015 – Effective insurance regulation promotes financial inclusion and supports people’s basic rights of life, livelihood and shelter. Disruptive insurance regulation, or no regulation at all, deprives the poorest people in our world from this protection. Mutual and co-operative providers of microinsurance are very aware of the sharp reality that inclusive insurance, insurance that reaches all strata of our societies, can only thrive with adequate regulation.

Alan Knight: Rethinking Corporate Sustainability – If Only We Ran the Planet Like a Shop!
March 2013 - A can-do, positive narrative on sustainable development. This narrative might come across as simplistic, but it is well-informed through real-life experiences and contrasts. It draws on the combined emotional and technical intelligence developed by being confronted with: a child making brass door handles in squalor in India; the memory of another child’s face when the toy they dreamed for was out of stock; the sight of a beautifully laid-out garden centre ready for the Easter rush; the destruction of a tropical forest that supplied the timber for the garden benches or seeing an overweight child enjoying a second burger for lunch in the UK. Its purpose is to build first-hand experiences through humour, metaphors, and clarity to help business leaders and others value and embrace the sustainability challenge.

Tony Juniper: What Has Nature Ever Done for Us?
January 2013 - From Indian vultures to Chinese bees, nature provides the 'natural services' that keep the economy going. From the recycling miracles in the soil; an army of predators ridding us of unwanted pests; an abundance of life creating a genetic codebook that underpins our food, pharmaceutical industries and much more. It has been estimated that these and other services are each year worth about double global GDP. Yet we take most of Nature's services for granted, imagining them free and limitless... until they suddenly switch off.

Ramon Arratia: Full Product Transparency: Cutting the Fluff Out of Sustainability
December 2012 - In the past decade, thousands of companies have started the journey towards sustainability, leading to a huge supporting industry of sustainability professionals, lorry loads of corporate reports, and a plethora of green labels and marketing claims.
