Abstract

11 January 2017 | New York | The private sector channeled $8.2 billion (B) of private capital into investments that seek measurable environmental benefits – in addition to financial returns – between 2004 and 2015 according to a report released today by Forest Trends’ Ecosystem Marketplace. The report, which builds upon the 2014 report Investing in Conservation: A landscape assessment of an emerging market, tracks the burgeoning field of “conservation investing” – a component of socially and environmentally conscious “impact investing.” By the report’s definition, these conservation investments include any private capital committed for sustainable food and fiber production, habitat protection, or clean water that aim to achieve environmental conservation objectives while also delivering a financial return.
