Conservation of the Natural Environment
The environment is under increasing pressure due to climate change caused by pollution, poor waste management and the burning of fossil fuels. These damaging environmental impacts have a direct and indirect effect on people's lives. Social impact investment enables social enterprises, charities, and social purpose organisations to develop social business models that link environmental and social benefit by supporting renewable energy and preserving nature sites.
Social enterprises, charities, and social purpose organisations working in this area can help individuals reduce their personal impact on the environment and access their natural surroundings, while increasing awareness of the importance of sustainable living for communities.
