Diversity initiatives and inclusive work environments are not enough to resolve systemic racism in the US. Racial justice means financing Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) entrepreneurs. It means investment in neglected community infrastructure that has healthy food markets, affordable housing, community development, as well as access to clean, thriving natural parks and places.
Last year Natural Investments clients helped finance
BIPOC-owned or led businesses
in 14 BIPOC-led organizations
in 3 organizations led by women of color
Racial justice means a reimagined approach to equity and debt that is non-extractive, meaning the borrower or business owners gains are not exceeded by the lender or investees returns. Natural Investments is committed to racial justice as a focal point for a prosperous planet for all human beings.
