Pollution, population growth, and the rapid consumption of our world’s natural resources continue to intensify the effects of climate change, which disproportionately affects lower income communities, particularly in developing countries. The sustainable management of natural resources, decreased dependency on fossil fuels, and proliferation of climate adaptation practices will reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and improve environmental diversity and abundance, while meeting basic human needs and minimizing adverse effects on human health and well-being. We invest in intermediaries, funds, and other financing structures that provide flexible catalytic capital to managers or projects addressing climate change mitigation, climate change adaptation, and sustainable management of resources.
