Environmental Finance (“EF”) is a leading environmental and social impact investment advisor in the UK, working across the conservation, natural and built asset sectors. We form partnerships to create innovative, investable projects. Environmental Finance was established with a vision where society better uses its natural assets and resources, sharing them equitably within local economies to support thriving, healthy, and sustainable communities.
Our mission is to be a core part of the impact investment movement to redirect £50 billion of global investment to projects to permanently end global species decline, secure habitats and the environment for future generations. We work to stop natural asset spend being seen as an expense, where instead it should be perceived as an investment, given the multiple benefits society receives that far outweigh this spend (e.g. pollination, climate regulation, clean water, health and wellbeing to name a few).
What We Do:
We develop solutions to structure projects that will tackle environmental and social challenges whilst delivering fair financial returns for investors, local communities and the environment at large. We are members of the Finance for Sustainability group, a non-profit organisation working on big ideas to connect new forms of investment to social issues in the UK.
