About us

We are a mission-driven social enterprise, working in partnership with world leading environmental organisations to protect and restore nature utilising market based mechanisms and implementing bespoke financial tools. We help create projects – and the investment vehicles to fund them – that balance positive outcomes for nature, communities and investors.


The restoration and security of our planet – and the people on it – requires the development, support and maintenance of systems that provide an equitable, harmonious, and sustainable distribution of resources. Finance Earth exists to meet this need.

Massive behavioural change is needed at a societal, governmental, corporate and household level, and we know that finance is a powerful tool to make it happen.

We work in partnership with project developers, government, businesses and enablers to create investable environmental and social projects. At the same time, we work with a range of investors to structure financial products that can accelerate delivery of the right capital to the right activity.

We believe that change is possible, that problems can be solved, people can do better, and structures and systems can be evolved and challenged given sufficient commitment. Ours is a unique proposition, with an impressive track record of delivering results that work on the ground, not just in theory.
