“When sustainability is viewed as being a matter of survival for your business, you can create massive change."
We’re inspired by the change we wish to see in the world — one where global commerce, technological progress, and sustainability coexist. Some see adversity. We see opportunity. We believe 2050 is the year of “too late” and time is of the essence to accelerate the transition to a sustainable global economy.
R-evolution plays an essential role in accelerating this transition by identifying and attracting capital to finance business opportunities that benefit the environment and society. We seek impact investments that aim to reduce carbon emissions, save our oceans, protect our forests, and more. Because we are not a charity or philanthropic foundation, every project added to our portfolio ultimately benefits the planet, people and profits.
Global commerce doesn’t have to be the enemy to a sustainable future, instead it can be the solution. R-evolution is 100 per cent business-driven. All investments come with a return. When business does better, the planet we all call home does as well. In this sense, we seek a trajectory of exponential growth of good through reinvestment of R-evolution profits.
We offer opportunities for corporations and other investors to achieve their own sustainability goals or simply profit from real money-making opportunities that do good work. It is our intent to expand capital-raising in future green-tech investments, empowering any stakeholder to join the revolution, support the causes most important to them and see the difference targeted investments can make — all while making a profit in return.Planet – it’s time to give back to the planet we all take from
Humans are the great creator, but also the great destroyer — it’s mankind that creates a lot of fascinating things on this planet, but it’s also mankind that destroys the planet in the process of doing so. Sustainability makes good business sense, and we're all on the same team at the end of the day. That's the truth about the human condition.People – saving the Earth is a responsibility we all share
We are who we’ve been waiting for. People are the solution to the problem. This is our revolution. What we do now and in the next few years will determine the fate of the next few thousand.
Profit – profitability and sustainability can go hand in hand
“Contrary to popular belief, we do not face a choice between economy and ecology. It is often said that protecting the environment would constrain or even undermine economic growth. In fact, the opposite is true: unless we protect resources and the earth's natural capital, we shall not be able to sustain economic growth.” Kofi Annan, Secretary General, United Nations, 2000
