CLIMATE STEWARDS 

1) In developing countries we plant trees and support sustainable living to prevent poverty, protect wildlife and absorb CO2, a main cause of climate change. 2) We explain climate issues and promote 'living better on low carbon' to encourage action.3) We show how core Christian values imply concern about climate change. We work in partnerships and do not restrict those who benefit.
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • There has been strong growth in spending over the last 5 years
  • There have been no material income shortfalls in recent years
  • The Board appears to be well diversified in terms of age and gender and dynamic in terms of composition

Financial issues to consider:

  • A PartB annual return has not been required and so detailed financial information is not available from the online data
  • There has been a change of accounting period recently, so trends may be hard to determine
