eco.business Informe de impacto 2018

This report sets out the progress made since the fund's inception and the approach with which it seeks to make a real difference for the planet. The eco.business Fund seeks to generate long-term impact by providing financing and technical assistance that promote business and consumer practices aimed at the conservation of biodiversity and the sustainable use of natural resources. Through its activities, the fund encourages greater integration between economic development and sustainable practices. In addition to financial returns, the fund is generating impacts that reach new dimensions. With more than 3,000 end borrowers who sustainably carry out agricultural and food production activities, the fund supports the sustainable management of more than 140,000 hectares of agricultural land, which not only helps protect fragile and highly biodiverse ecosystems, but also it also promotes more efficient use of natural resources. In this way, both the causes and the effects of climate change are addressed, through the financing of agroforestry systems or technologies to save water.
