Accountability and measurement of the impact of projects is a key part of our investment strategy and fundamental to our success. We have systems in place to continuously monitor the financial, environmental and social performance of any investments; identify risks; and report on impacts. The resulting lessons learned feed directly back into our adaptive management process to ensure continual improvement in the performance of Fund portfolios – for the benefit of our investors, ecosystems and communities.

In doing so we will adhere to strict environmental, social and governance (ESG) guidelines in accordance with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and covering all targets that underpin the sustainability strategy of Natural Capital:

  • Sustainable financial returns

  • Climate change mitigation and adaptation
