      Natural Capital and Sustainable Investment

      Investment is being viewed through a new environmental lens. We’ll help you unlock environmental opportunities in your existing land holdings and secure the right sustainable investments for your portfolio.

      Our tools, strategies and tested frameworks for delivering natural climate solutions will help enhance your land’s natural capital and develop carbon positive projects.

      Bidwells’ long history of advising college endowment funds means our advice will be framed in the context of the unique practical and financial constraints relevant to institutional portfolios.

      With all land and property management activity being closely scrutinised by stakeholders, many colleges are rightly choosing to allocate their capital in a more sustainable fashion and reassessing how they do things throughout their portfolio.

      Our deep understanding of the trade-offs and economics of these new private markets, and the practicalities of delivering nature-based solutions, will help deliver the right environmental outcomes and boost long-term returns.

      We can help you shape the markets driving the low carbon economy, helping you reach your net zero goals sooner and enhancing both your reputation and your balance sheet
