Statement of support

"By 2020, ECOTIERRA will have raised 50 million USD for the Canopy Sustainable Land Use Fund, which will invest in 24 cooperatives in Latin America to reach 13,300 producers (50% of which will be coffee producers), enabling them to increase revenue by 313% by generating incremental sales of 1,200 M USD , new diversified revenues of 248 M USD and increasing average sales price by 15% . Canopy will simultaneously lead to reducing deforestation on 10,700 hectares, reforest 40,000 hectares, protect 850,000 hectares and reduce 25,000,000 tonnes of Co2 emissions.

ECOTIERRA 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."
