Morgan Stanley Sustainable Solutions Collaborative

By supporting innovators of transformative solutions, the Sustainable Solutions Collaborative aims to address the most complex global sustainability issues, such as climate change, social justice and plastic waste.

The world’s most complex sustainability challenges require systems-level solutions. That’s why the Morgan Stanley Sustainable Solutions Collaborative identifies and aims to scale breakthrough innovations that can benefit from partnerships across private and public industries and disciplines.

About the Sustainable Solutions Collaborative


Every year, five winners chosen for the Sustainable Solutions Collaborative cohort will each receive $250,000 to develop breakthrough concepts focused on systemic solutions for global challenges.


Recipients will participate in a year-long collaboration with the Institute for Sustainable Investing, tapping into the full range of the firm’s experience, networks and resources to help them achieve scale and impact.


Long-term, members of the Collaborative will belong to a growing network of Morgan Stanley leaders and partner organizations that facilitate cross-sector collaboration on the most pressing sustainability issues.
