During this year’s World Economic Forum in Davos, the Government of Norway, the Consumer Goods Forum and the Global Environment Facility announced this new fund, aiming to “green agricultural investments”. The fund has been set up by IDH – Sustainable Trade Initiative and is now an independent legal entity.
&Green Fund, a global investment fund that supports companies that invest in forest and peatland restoration activities.
The Fund was initially supported by Norway, will attract other investors. GEF also supports the initial phase of the fund.
It is interesting that the &Green Fund will only invest in landscape or jurisdictions which have a forest landscape protection plan, or an Environment and Social Management Plan.
