At Akipeo we seek to leverage capital markets to enable the sustainable production of agricultural and other soft commodities in emerging markets. We work with public and private sector clients, investors and partners to develop and finance businesses and projects that profitably deliver environmental and social impact while enhancing food security and livelihoods.
We are in the process of developing the Akipeo Fund, a blended finance investment vehicle which will invest in businesses and projects that enable climate smart and socially inclusive agriculture in Sub-Saharan Africa.
The Akipeo Fund will look to do this in ways that leave countries and communities with a greater share of the economic benefits of the renewable natural resources they depend upon, and with those resources managed for the long term in a more efficient, climate smart manner.
Akipeo has been selected to join the first cohort of the International Climate Finance Accelerator Luxembourg (“ICFA”). The ICFA is a Public Private Partnership jointly led by the Luxembourg Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Sustainable Development and Infrastructure and private financial sector entities. The ICFA is designed to support innovative investment fund managers investing in positive impact projects that fight climate change.
