Our universe includes
Organisations that are able to improve water and air quality, reduce solid waste, reduce the emission of greenhouse gases, reduce the loss of biodiversity, conserve energy as well as alternative and renewable energy projects, sustainable transport solutions, greening communities (especially affordable housing projects) amongst others. We predominantly use debt instruments to support environmental enterprises that often struggle to access capital from traditional lenders.
As part of our due diligence, it is important for us to familiarise ourselves with the developmental sector within which the company operates. This is done through the studying of academic papers, published research, news articles as well as sector publications from leading sector bodies. Once research has been done on the particular sector we are able to determine whether the business is actually achieving high levels of environmental impact.
