The ability for global conservation solutions to reach the scale of the climate and development challenges we all face will depend on driving new resources to support this work, specifically increasing the flow of private capital. The appetite for conservation impact investments outpaces the development of investable deals. And the market is rapidly growing as more and more investors look for ways to align their portfolios with their values.

NatureVest, The Nature Conservancy’s impact investing unit, structures and deploys investment capital into transactions that deliver conservation and financial returns for investors. Our work leveraging private investment capital has already exponentially increased the impact of core philanthropic and public funding, while delivering larger scale conservation results. With almost $200 million in impact capital already deployed, we are focused on executing a pipeline of investments across five business lines: green infrastructure for stormwater mitigation, water markets, debt-for-nature swaps, working landscapes and sustainable agriculture.

This collection captures some of the latest thinking in this growing space of impact investing for conservation.
