Out now | E Co. 2023: A year in review

26 February 2024, Category: All insights, News, Reports, Tags: , , , ,

Climate change is happening at an ever-increasing rate, reducing community resilience, impacting livelihoods, and negatively affecting countless cultural identities around the globe. That is not the vision of a future that we want to see. 

Our vision is ‘a world sustainably transformed’. Now in our 24th year, we are ever more determined to support and guide our clients towards systemic transformation and a better world for future generations.

This is our vision. We’ve released our annual report, E Co. 2023: A Year in Review, so that you can explore how we’re making our vision a tangible reality. 

An assignment example: ‘Resilient Puna’

In E Co. 2023: A Year in Review, you’ll be able to explore twelve case studies of climate finance and development support we provided in 2023, working with clients such as the Green Climate Fund, GIZ, IFAD, IUCN, CCCCC, and UNIDO, amongst others. You can read this case study in full in our report.
