A Bank for Nature
To finance deals like these, the Conservancy and JPMorgan Chase formed an investment bank called NatureVest. NatureVest is a unit of the Conservancy that structures investments and raises capital from investors who want to fund projects that deliver both environmental and financial returns.
Impact investing has huge potential to scale up solutions to the big challenges we’ll be focusing on this week in Davos.
By tapping into a whole new source of funding, we can generate more capital for the environment and other important causes, introduce greater precision and accountability to our work and get more accomplished to make the world a better place.
I look forward to a robust discussion about impact investing here in Davos this week.
