In order to source a sufficient number of project leads in the key focus countries for &Green, SAIL Ventures has focused its efforts on a number of channels. These include using its resources on the ground in Brazil and SE Asia, partnership agreements with strategic partners that are active on the ground in relevant jurisdictions, as well as relevant development finance institutions (DFIs) and impact investors.
The idea is to have sufficient new project leads continuously entering the &Green Investment Process “funnel” annuallly to allow for the best of those transactions to be invested in every year. After the initial years, &Green expects to close three to five transactions per year.
The focus for &Green has been on building a robust pipeline, primarily in the key focus countries, and then progressing these leads through the investment process. Thus far the Fund has investigated over 80 projects stretching across 15 supply chains in 19 countries. Approximately half of these leads have been identiﬁed as potentially suitable (high level review) for &Green from an Environmental Return (ER) and from a commercial perspective. These leads are currently being ﬁltered through &Green’s extensive Investment Process.
