”The project is a real flagship, the strategy turned out to be very successful - excellent work”
We go beyond the ordinary. Clients trust E Co. to think deeper about what makes projects work, what the client really needs & what it takes to meet the requirements of project funders. We focus entirely on low-carbon and climate-resilient markets. We have a deep understanding of how to transform and create them. Working with the E Co. team means clients’ projects are approved more quickly, with fewer revisions and with significantly less headache.
We have worked in over 160 countries with organisations such as IFC, World Bank, EBRD, AfDB, UNDP & UNIDO and have mobilised funding of over USD 1 billion in support of climate resilient development. Clients trust us to know what works, and put that knowledge to work for their benefit.
It’s time to accelerate the rate of progress on climate and development projects – too many are not optimised for maximum impact, fail to get funding or get bogged down in bureaucracy – this is not making the world better fast enough! We’re determined to partner with like-minded clients to improve this situation. Let’s accelerate progress together.
