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.
More on our investment solution...
Business model is proven, repeatable, globally scalable, and has a positive environmental impact
Businesses must generate consistent earnings or EBITDA of >$1M, or can otherwise demonstrate a strong commercial adoption and clear path to repeatable and growing earnings
Environmental results are core to the business and revenue model
EcoInvestors has developed a quantitative Environmental Rate of Return (ERR) to
measure environmental impact, alongside IRR.
ERR + IRR = real environmental impact and real returns.
We apply our environmental principles, and the quantification and measurement of 6 environmental categories to derive an investment’s ERR. We also use ERR in the screening and ongoing assessment of our investments. Here's our rationale:
Highly Consistent - with process, data, analysis and reporting across the industry
Measurable Value - quantitative with clear methods of assessment and target outcomes
Always Net Positive Environmental Impact - with each investment and portfolio as a whole
Broad Scalability - with proven product, service or technology to help achieve environmental SDGs
Attribution - of impact creation and associated timing to our involvement
Long-term Durability - sustainability of impact created over time
