An impact-driven approach is essential to addressing the interrelated challenges arising from climate change, resource depletion and increasing demands from a growing global population.

We measure impact on our forest carbon projects across seven impact criteria:

CLIMATE

Projects reduce greenhouse gas emissions, enhance climate change mitigation and increase the resilience and adaptability of their immediate vicinity

ECOSYSTEMS

Projects protect and strive to enhance ecosystem functions, ecological processes and ecosystem services

SPECIES

Projects have a positive impact on biodiversity and act to improve the conservation status of threatened and endangered species

LIVELIHOODS

Projects provide dignified livings and sustained family incomes through investment in sustainable commodities

INCLUSIVITY

Projects empower and protect rights to participate in decision-making and economic opportunities

SUSTAINABLE ENTERPRISE

Projects enable enterprises to grow in a way that is environmentally, socially and economically sustainable

FAIR ECONOMIC RETURN

Projects achieve balanced returns for project stakeholders, including investors and local stakeholders

We use key performance indicators (KPIs) to track progress on our projects ensuring that they all maximise their environmental and social impact.

An annual Impact Report shows the progress of the Althelia Climate Fund portfolio against 2021 targets.
