The Nature Transformation Fund is a curated portfolio aimed at fostering transformative environmental change and achieving Global Biodiversity Targets. The fund is supported by a group of leading experts and is underpinned by a comprehensive framework taking an impact first approach. It addresses the need to balance short and long-term objectives by supporting strategic initiatives under three critical pillars: Innovative Finance, Policy & Accountability, and Ecosystem Health.

Innovative Finance

Closing the funding gap

Innovative finance focuses on developing financial strategies to sustainably manage and preserve natural resources. It seeks to secure continuous funding and unlock extra resources for long-term environmental stewardship. Mechanisms like conservation finance and blended finance, harness economic incentives to support conservation efforts and generate financial benefits encouraging community participation and ownership.

Policy & Accountability

Empowering local communities

Policy & accountability highlights the role of local communities in solving environmental issues by promoting science-based policies, strategic litigation, and robust accountability mechanisms. It acknowledges the critical importance of insights and experiences from these communities in developing effective and equitable policies that protect the environment and facilitate a socially just transition.

Ecosystem Health

Protecting biodiverse ecosystems

Ecosystem health supports the '30x30' targets of the Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework, which aims to protect and manage 30% of the world's terrestrial, freshwater, and marine areas by 2030. Currently, only about 17% of land and 8% of marine areas are protected. This effort is crucial for combating biodiversity loss and climate change, ensuring the preservation of natural systems essential for human well-being and all life on Earth.

“We have spent three years investing directly in on-the-ground projects and building extensive knowledge in how to select and manage projects for maximum return on investment. With this new fund we are making this expertise available to all tech and finance companies looking for a ‘plug-and-play’ route to investing directly in on-the-ground biodiversity projects.”
