Environmental conservation is a growing global movement. It seeks to reduce climate change, improve natural habitats for the world’s flora and fauna, and make sustainable profits doing it.
Some investors seek to drive change that is ongoing, while also profitable. This can be obtained through government initiatives such as carbon tax credits or higher revenues on sustainable products.
In the business of environmental conservation, some investors seek direct impact on projects. For example, capturing stormwater runoff, ecosystem restoration or water conservation.
People invest in an environmental problem if there is significant potential to generate commercial and investment returns, while also maximising positive environmental impact.
