Using Capital as a Catalyst for Change: Ecofin Makes Annual Donation to Help Water.org Bring Safe Water and Sanitation to the World

Every $1 investment made in water and sanitation provides a $4 economic return from driving improved health, more productivity and greater opportunities in terms of education, employment and livelihoods.1

OVERLAND PARK, KS – January 7, 2022 – During this giving season, Ecofin, a sustainable investment firm, has donated 5% of its 2021 net revenues from its water investment platform to Water.org in support of their belief that water is the best investment the world can make to improve health, empower women, enable access to education, increase family income and change lives. Water.org empowers people in need with lasting access to safe water and sanitation – giving women hope, children health and families a bright future.

“We are fortunate to be able to share a portion of net revenue, spread awareness and use the capital from our business endeavors to help solve the global water crisis and support Water.org,” said Nick Holmes, Portfolio Manager & Managing Director. “A confluence of events is driving a capital supply and demand imbalance surrounding water’s use, reuse, and the essential infrastructure. Significant investment is required to address this imbalance, which in turn, presents an opportunity for investors to participate in the sector’s impact-oriented growth.”  

“We appreciate the continued support of Ecofin that will help fuel our smart solutions and change more lives,” said Melanie Mendrys, Water.org Director of Brand + Marketing. “Together we will empower more families in need with lasting access to safe water, and the hope, health and opportunity that flow from it.”
