We assist the fin­an­cial sec­tor on this jour­ney by provid­ing tar­geted con­sult­ing ser­vices on the top­ics of green and cli­mate-smart fin­ance. We lay the found­a­tions for triple bot­tom line report­ing and improve access to fin­ance in devel­op­ing coun­tries. With a second office in Ecuador, our cur­rent oper­a­tions cover Costa Rica, Colom­bia, El Sal­vador, Domin­ican Repub­lic, Guatem­ala as well as Benin, Senegal and Burk­ina Faso.
