E Co. is an international climate finance and development consultancy, uniquely specialised in the design of low-carbon, climate-resilient projects and programmes. For over 20 years, our team of specialist consultants have been providing technical expertise to help our clients solve climate adaptation and mitigation challenges, by devising projects that have greater impact & funding success. We provide multi-disciplinary and cross-sectoral market assessments, develop strategies and formulate projects to provide long-lasting solutions for the environment and communities across Africa, Eastern Europe, Latin America and Asia.
We strive to think more deeply about the complex social, technical, financial, political & economic interactions that affect projects. This has led us to a 99% success rate in unlocking climate finance and the mobilisation of over USD $3 billion from global climate funds, including: GCF, GEF, Adaptation Fund and NAMA Facility. We have strong relationships across the climate and development industry and are trusted by public and private sector organisations to design their projects – from National Designated Authorities (NDAs) to Accredited Entities (AEs), including multilateral development banks, UN agencies and Civil Society Organisations (CSOs).
To complement our consulting work, we provide international training and capacity-building courses, for public and private sector institutions, with an aim to further global skills and understanding of international finance mechanisms and how to access them – specifically the Green Climate Fund (GCF)
Our clients include: EBRD, GGGI, IFC, World Bank, UNIDO, the European Union, Save The Children, UNHCR, UNDP, GACC and AfDB, WaterAid, IUCN, FAO, UNCDF, UK PACT, UNESCO, RMI, BEIS, GIZ, PROPARCO, Chatham House, IFAD, WWF, Danish Refugee Council, NDC Partnership, NETFUND, IIED, IFC, ENDEV, Carbon Trust, REEEP, UNIDO, UNEP, KfW.
We are proud members of the GCF Communities of Practice network and PPF Service framework, Climate Markets and Investment Association (CMIA) and we are B Corp certified.
”They are much more plugged in with what’s happening in the donor community.”
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.
