Commitment by

EcoEnterprises Fund

In 2014, EcoEnterprises Fund committed to raising EcoEIII, an $80 million fund to finance the next level of growth in sustainable companies and protect some of the most threatened ecosystems on the planet by bringing much-needed income to local communities. EcoEnterprises Fund I invested seed capital in first mover environmental enterprises, and EcoEII brought them to scale with investments in select growing companies. Collectively, these investments generated impressive results - 3,513 jobs created, 293 community groups benefited, 13,000 small producers involved, $282 million in sales generated, and 860,773 hectares of land conserved. Thus far, EcoEnterprises Fund's portfolio sustainably manages or directly protects 1.7 million hectares, supports 4,245 suppliers and benefits 23,135 local persons. EcoEIII will provide risk capital to facilitate company consolidations, acquisitions, and partnerships, promulgating sustainable principles and transforming the thinking of how businesses can sustainably advance conservation efforts by both performing financially and deliver positive impacts through active local engagement.
