C2I’s story is one of innovation within the rise of conservation capitalism. Our focus is to create conservation restoration in large-scale and deliver a return for all who participate in that scale. As the earth’s resources shrink, amidst a continuously increasing rate of energy consumption and growth in world populations, technology alone will not supplant resources to keep pace in benefiting the health of the planet while providing the energy resources we require. Therefore, we have looked to a new frontier and created a new investment paradigm, a new means of simultaneously creating impact and return.
Conservation of land and the environment is facing enormous challenges. As land is changing hands and use, the concentration of global wealth for conservation money becomes ever so slightly diluted, making it harder for conservation to scale and sustain itself. Using private commercial capital for conservation represents a new frontier since, to date, conservation has primarily been funded through philanthropic or governmental money.
We believe bringing private capital into conservation requires blending sound economic returns with responsible environmental values. This ‘blended return’ centers conservation within economics, allowing economics to become more focused on purpose - offering a powerful and dynamic proposition to enable a wider net of available dollars to create exponential impacts.
