ESG Approach

Althelia Ecosphere (Æ) is an asset management business designed to pair economic and financial performance with premium social and environmental outcomes, impacts and risk management. We bring innovative conservation finance to projects, organisations and businesses that conserve the environment and improve peoples’ livelihoods whilst also being commercially successful over the long term. Our focus is on financing activities that address the major global environmental challenges such as climate change, protection of landscapes, soil and marine resources.

Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance (ESG) excellence is a key dimension of every project supported by Æ. We have developed an overarching ESG policy that is applied to every entity managed or operated within the Æ group, which at its core requires activities and investments (e.g. projects receiving investment from the group) to comply with the IFC Performance Standards. Additionally, other relevant internationally recognised standards such as CCB, Fairtrade and MSC are applied wherever relevant to further ensure that we operate at (and in many cases, define) the level of best practice. We believe that through achieving environmental and social excellence our projects will build robust, sustainable and long-lasting projects that will benefit communities and the environment beyond the life of Æ’s investment or engagement.

We have key ESG principles that apply to all our funds and activities, which also serve as the focus for our impact monitoring and reporting.

ESG Principles

Our ESG Performance

Our main ESG impacts are through the way we manage assets.  However, we implement our own activities to minimise negative impacts and support positive change, for example:
