The Rainforest Alliance, Mirova Partner on Regenerative Agriculture

International non-profit The Rainforest Alliance and Mirova, an affiliate of Natixis Investment Managers, are collaborating to scale up locally-led nature-based solutions (NbS) focused on regenerative agriculture. “We need partnerships like this to accelerate the shift of agriculture and forestry to net-positive at a meaningful speed and scale,” said Santiago Gowland, CEO of The Rainforest Alliance. “By connecting impact investors like Mirova with the alliance’s proven on-the-ground impact, we can mobilise private capital for a just, regenerative transition.” Leveraging Mirova’s investment strategy dedicated to sustainable land use – through which the asset manager has ambitions to raise €350 million (US$381 million) – the duo will target impact investing opportunities across Africa, Latin America and Asia that will help to contribute to the NbS financing gap. Regenerative agriculture contributes to carbon sequestration and water retention while enhancing soil health, helping to strengthen community resilience to the negative impacts of climate change. “Mirova and The Rainforest Alliance share a common vision: to accelerate the transition from nature-dependent economic value chains to a more sustainable model which improves the incomes and rights of local communities,” said Anne-Laurence Roucher, Deputy CEO and Head of Private Equity and Natural Capital at Mirova.
