Public and philanthropic capital are important in addressing these problems, but are insufficient.
Flexible and private capital focused on long-term, high-quality and values-aligned investment opportunities are therefore required to bridge the annual $1-2T funding gap.
We invest in environmentally and socially positive projects that support innovative, profitable solutions that can contribute to all 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and directly help achieve the environment-related goals.
We assess and invest for both strong IRR and Environmental Rate of Return (ERR) – our quantitative measure of environmental impact – without compromising either.
