Althelia Ecosphere has published its 2017 Impact Report, illustrating its social, environmental and economic achievements in 2016. Althelia is proud to announce that it is on track or exceeding all its 2021 targets. The report features an exploration into how Althelia’s projects support ecosystems and the ecosystem services we all rely on, as well as an inspirational interview with one of Cordillera Azul’s park rangers.
“Althelia Ecosphere is an asset management business designed to pair economic and financial performance with premium social and environmental outcomes, impacts and risk management. The Althelia Climate Fund, established in June of 2013, does just that. We wanted to clearly demonstrate that competitive financial returns could be fully aligned with the preservation of natural capital and social development. To achieve this, we are using an approach that aims to profitably direct finance to activities that generate, at the same time, income from sustainable agriculture (e.g. cocoa and coffee certified to Fairtrade and organic standards) and environmental services (e.g. carbon, biodiversity).” – said founders and managing partners Christian del Valle and Sylvain Goupille.
