SRI Executive focuses on five key thematic areas including development finance, education, global health, international development and sustainability.
SRI Executive partners with global development organisations supporting their work to address challenging and interconnected social, economic and geo-political issues. Our clients deliver innovative solutions to poverty, hunger and malnutrition, education, gender inequality and violence, and democracy and injustice. Their respective mandates contribute to the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and their approach gives due consideration to climate adaptation and mitigation.
Our deep sectoral experience enables us to understand our clients’ needs and develop tailored solutions that help them to achieve their critical goals. Examples of the organisations we have collaborated with include the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Fairtrade, the UNDP and the World Food Programme.
Key global health indicators are affected by progress in the medical field and a multitude of context-specific factors including stigma, lack of protection for vulnerable communities, limited education opportunities, climate change, lack of access to clean water and sanitation, government healthcare policies and the rise in non-communicable diseases.
SRI Executive collaborates with global health organisations that work tirelessly to achieve equitable access to healthcare solutions and education. Our partners target pressing health issues, especially those affecting vulnerable communities, through medical research, health investment, market access to health solutions, education and advocacy. Organisations that we have worked with include FHI 360, Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN), TB Alliance and the World Health Organisation.
SRI Executive is proud to work with organisations committed to addressing the COVID-19 pandemic. To show our thanks and appreciation, in 2021 we donated 1,300 COVID-19 vaccines to those that need them most.
SRI Executive partners with international finance institutions, including multilateral development banks, grant bodies and impact investors. These organisations provide financial assistance and sustainable business solutions and investments to address the world’s key social issues.
Over the last 20 years extreme poverty has been in continuous decline but since 2019, the number of people around the world living on less than $1.90 a day has risen. This increase is due to the COVID-19 pandemic, climate change and conflict. Official development assistance (the top form of development funding) also rose by 4% between 2019 and 2020. However, without further interventions including financial assistance and support to strengthen national and international finance systems, achieving the SDGs by 2030 remains unlikely.
Development finance institutions that SRI Executive has supported in their crucial missions includes the African Development Bank (AfDB), Asia Development Bank (ADB), Caribbean Development Bank (CDB), European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), European Investment Bank (EIB), Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) and the World Bank Group. We have also partnered with development finance organisations such as Finance in Motion, the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
We are already witnessing the impact of climate-related issues such as greenhouse gas emissions, the global rise in temperature and extreme weather on public health, food and water, migration, peace and security. Climate change poses new and unpredictable challenges for reaching the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and threatens the progress already made.
SRI Executive collaborates with sustainability organisations that address climate and the environment, agriculture and agri-research and renewable energy and clean technology. Our clients transform energy, agricultural and urban infrastructure and industrial systems, as well as advocate for conservation and environmentally friendly practices that mitigate the impact of climate change.
Some of SRI Executive’s very first clients were sustainability organisations, and we are deeply committed to these critical issues and supporting our clients to achieve their goals. Examples of the sustainability organisations we have partnered with include One CGIAR, UN Environment Programme, United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCC) and the World Wide Fund for Nature.
SRI Executive collaborates with organisations that support access to education for the most disadvantaged children across the world. Poverty is often the main barrier to accessing education, although girls and children with disabilities face the greatest obstacles.
We also partner with leading research and development institutes and universities. These organisations cut across disciplines to find solutions to the world’s most urgent challenges. They have the potential to dramatically improve the wellbeing of people across the globe.
SRI Executive works with all of these organisations to identify leading experts in their field and develop exceptional leaders, as well as co-create strategies that pave the way for positive global impact. Examples of education-focussed organisations that we have worked with include ADAPT – Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) International Research Centre, Asian Institute of Technology, Cornell University, Education Practice – World Bank, John Hopkins University, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, Trinity College Dublin and UNICEF.
