About Us

Amulet is inspired by the life and work of the late Tessa Tennant OBE, a sustainable finance pioneer.

Following its launch at a Lifetime Achievement event celebrating Tessa's career in 2018, the sculpture initiative became a project of CDP Worldwide. CDP is a registered charity (No. 1122330) and a company limited by guarantee, incorporated and registered in England and Wales (No. 05013650), with its registered office at Plantation Place South, 60 Great Tower Street, London EC3R 5AD.

The project committee is led by experts in sustainable finance, climate change and art, with specialist input from Modus Operandi, leading public art experts.
