Scaling Climate Solutions Cross-Border
While we have the solutions we need to address the climate crisis, the rate of market adoption is far too slow. With solutions originating in one location and the greatest need and opportunity typically being elsewhere, scaling solutions cross-border in a streamlined way is critical.
Drashta Impact and Cycle will be hosting a session to discuss their collaboration and outline how they are collectively working to mobilise more capital and scale climate solutions cross-border through a de-risked approach.

About Drashta ImpacT
Drashta Impact de-risks impact investing to mobilise capital and accelerate solutions at the scale and pace needed to solve the climate crisis. While awareness of this existential threat has never been greater, a significant funding shortfall still remains to accelerate solutions, with risk being the primary bottleneck.
Drashta's risk mitigation overlay enables investors to be part of the solution by providing a secure, collaborative way to invest impactfully with the level of downside protection they require to move forward with complete assurance.
