About Triple Line 

For over 25 years, Triple Line has worked with governments, financial institutions, the private sector, foundations, and civil society to deliver an expanding portfolio of development assistance in countries across Africa, Asia, and the rest of the world. 

Climate change, loss of biodiversity, growing poverty, entrenched inequality, unemployment, access to decent work, shifting demographics – these are just some of the complex problems standing in the way of the global sustainable development goals. We are helping to address many of them at both a policy level and on the ground. By combining innovative thinking with practical solutions, we aim to help meet today’s challenges and prepare for tomorrow’s opportunities.
Our ultimate goal is to create opportunities for people, protect the environment, and generate prosperity in responsible ways that create lasting value, unleash innovation, and build inclusion and equity.

Triple Line culture

Triple Line promotes independent thinking and critical challenge. We encourage debate and love new ideas. We operate a flat hierarchy where all voices are heard, and opportunities are granted on merit not on grade.
