Who We Are

Multi-disciplinary solutions require a multi-disciplinary team

Environmental problems are complex and require multi-disciplinary approaches for their solution. The Greenfi team includes ecological, economic, technology, finance, natural resource management and legal expertise. We develop last mile solutions for pressing natural resource management problems which have potential for transformative scale, together with the financing models and tools which support those solutions. Our tools leverage our field experience as practitioners and our wide-ranging viewpoints.

Our solutions and the tools which support them are practical, workable and scalable. We have won a variety of prizes including including the United Nations Development Program & Morgan Stanley UFJ Prize for Climate Change Finance Innovation, the Global Innovation Lab for Climate Finance, a ClimateKIC award, a SwissRe ReSource prize and a Mastercard Zambezi Innovation Prize.
