The value of intact, functioning ecosystems is becoming more apparent as our planet comes under increasing stress.
Whether it’s meeting the global challenge of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030, the Task Force on Climate Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) or the Task Force on Nature related Financial Solutions, charting a path to sustainability can seem difficult, murky, and time consuming.
As the public and regulators increasingly demand more robust definitions of “sustainable” investments and practices, we can assist in meeting those demands and ensuring investments, supply chains, and business practices achieve the ambitious targets required to reduce human impacts.
We founded Wilderness Markets because we believe intact habitats should exist and should be valued appropriately by assessing environmental, social, and governance inputs in addition to financial.
The truth is markets exist for both the ecosystem and for the products they can provide without destroying these habitats. Our role is to promote triple-bottom line investments by
- providing access to markets
- providing access to best practices
- providing access to capital
Our experience spans both terrestrial and marine environments in Africa, Latin and Central America and the United States. Focus sectors include agri-business, tourism, and fisheries.
