About

Our missions


Working with other organisations, NEF aims to create a new economy that works for people and within environmental limits. We are guided by three missions:

  1. A new social settlement
    A new social settlement will ensure people are paid well, have more time off to spend with their families, and have access to the things we all need for a decent life.

  2. A Green New Deal
    The Green New Deal is a plan for government-led investment to reduce the carbon we emit and massively boost nature, while creating a new generation of jobs.

  3. The democratic economy
    We need to devolve state power and transform ownership of the economy to give us all an equal stake in the places where we live and work.

    Underpinning all three missions is an acknowledgement that the rules and institutions that shape our economy are not forces of nature beyond our control, but have been designed by people. Over the past 40 years, they have been redesigned in favour of the market rather than people and planet. In little more than a decade, we must redesign them again.
