Securing financing for individual projects is the cornerstone of our work. The long-term success of any project requires establishing an appropriate capital structure as well as aligning the objectives of funders with those of the project. As providers of concessionary and commercial capital often have different objectives, bringing them together in a unified capital structure is essential.

The return profile of conservation projects can vary widely and usually encompasses both monetary and non-monetary returns. Conservation project funders can also be more varied than a normal company’s investors, and may include private grant providers, impact investors, government and multilateral institutions in addition to commercial investors.
