Althelia Ecosphere

Type: investor

Country: United Kingdom

Date of signing: 12 March 2012

“Today, quite simply, the business-as-usual model for development is failing. Financial capital is more often than not deployed in a manner that comes nowhere near to reflecting the value of Earth’s natural capital, and the price of this is all-to-often borne by those separated by space and time from the point at which economic values are realised. We find marine and terrestrial ecosystems, biodiversity, fresh water resources and the Earth’s climate in a perilous state, and at the root of this problem is the fact that the traditional economy as it is constructed is woefully inadequate in ascribing anything like the true value of these resources, which are mission-critical for life on earth and the human economy writ large. As an asset management platform dedicated to piloting approaches for directing the enabling financial and technical resources necessary to shift commerce and economic growth in the tropics and sub-tropics away from a model based solely on near-term financial returns to one in which financial, economic, environmental and social benefits are aligned and mutually re-inforce each other, Althelia Ecosphere is proud to endorse the Natural Capital Declaration.”
