The research on sleeping financial giants has an explicit goal to engage in dialogue with the financial sector and other relevant stakeholders. Some of the key collaborators are the UNEP Finance Initiative, and the UN-supported Principles for Responsible Investment (UNPRI). The project also aims to reach wider audiences through a series of outreach products and other communication efforts. See some examples below.
