ACCELERATING PRIVATE SECTOR IMPACT INVESTMENTS

Natural Strategies supports a leading private sector impact investor in identifying and assessing the sustainability of potential investments globally, to maximize environmental and social impacts.

 

Sustainable private sector finance is growing, but to ensure measurable and lasting benefits, investments should comply with best-practice Environmental, Social and Governance criteria, processes and safeguards. 

Natural Strategies strengthens the capacity of a leading private sector impact investor on latest trends and opportunities in sustainable finance, on mitigating any environmental and social risks and on applying sustainability standards in practice. Based on this, Natural Strategies helps the client build an initial pipeline of commercial opportunities, assesses individual investment leads in terms of environmental sustainability (including biodiversity & ecosystem benefits and climate change mitigation) and social sustainability (including level of stakeholder engagement, transparency and equitable decision making). In addition, we develop processes and tools that help the client monitor the impacts of investments over time and maximize the client's learning with each transaction.

By strengthening the sustainability of the portfolio, we help structure revenue-generating high-impact investments that will improve land and marine conservation & biodiversity, foster socioeconomic development and contribute to gender equity.
