We invest in companies and projects that benefit business, society and the environment. Working with a range of expert partners and practitioners, we identify, develop, structure and implement projects that develop tangible social and environmental benefits, while simultaneously generating risk-adjusted financial returns to the economy. A circular economy challenges the notion that products, systems and business models have an end-life through the belief that there is always a way to renew, reuse and regenerate existing resources by using superior design, planning and material usage. We believe we can contribute to a truly circular economy in which everyone can thrive. Our ultimate goal is that the revenue generated from our projects can be effectively reinvested in the restoration and regeneration of the world’s most fragile ecosystems.
