Our Commitments

By 2020 - ECOTIERRA will have raised 50 million USD for the fund Urapi Sustainable Land Use, which will invest in 24 cooperatives in Latin America to reach 8,000 producers [75% of which will be coffee producers], enabling them to increase revenue by 300% by generating incremental sales of 1,000 M USD, new diversified revenues of 96 M USD and increasing average sales price by 15%. Urapi will simultaneously lead to reducing deforestation on 8,000 hectares, reforest 25,000 hectares, protect 400,000 hectares and reduce 7,300,000 tonnes of Co2e emissions. Urapi generates returns for investors through designing and operating integrated interventions which respond to producers, cooperatives’ and buyers’ needs - including [i] patient credit for land use transition [ii] traceability and marketing tools to position coffees on specialty markets and [iii] revenue diversification through climate finance and the generation of VCS-certified carbon credits from the coffee supply chain.
