Impact report for Eco.Business fund 2018


The eco.business Fund seeks long-term impact by providing financing and technical assistance to promote business and consumer practices that contribute to biodiversity conservation and the sustainable use of natural resources.


This fund seeks to encourage greater integration of economic development with sustainable practices. Today, along with financial returns, the fund's impacts are beginning to materialize. With more than 3,000 subborrowers involved in sustainable agriculture and food production, the fund supports more than 140,000 hectares of sustainably managed agricultural land, contributing to the protection of fragile and biodiversity-rich ecosystems, more efficient use of natural resources, and addressing both the causes and impacts of climate change through the financing of agroforestry.




These changes were made possible by the many investors who believed, similar to the fund's initiators, that sustainable production can go hand in hand with profitability. This report will guide you along the fund's path to impact. It will also introduce you to some of the fund's partner institutions and sub-borrowers that are already setting benchmarks in financing conservation and sustainable production in Latin America.




We are proud to not only increase our investments and impact, but also expand our geographic coverage: in 2019, the fund will expand its activities to sub-Saharan Africa, adding exciting new opportunities to support sustainable business practices.
