Socially Responsible Investors
CLF Ventures believes that successful business models should have a “triple bottom line”: a goal to demonstrate ecological and social performance in addition to financial performance. Triple-bottom-line enterprises are profitable, socially responsible, and environmentally friendly. We know from our experience with numerous clients that these three components are not mutually exclusive and that with the right planning and development, businesses can successfully balance these three objectives, leading to benefits for shareholders, the public, and the natural world.
CLF Ventures believes that companies can engage in this triple-bottom-line philosophy and be more successful in the process. We use our expertise to help companies look at their “social license to operate” as a resource of value which can be built up through good decisions and communication. This resource of value can be called on during critical times when stakeholder trust is imperative, thereby reducing risk and increasing profitability and competitive advantage.
CLF Ventures is able to structure investment funds to meet environmental and economic development objectives. With our environmental expertise and business acumen, CLF Ventures is uniquely positioned to develop funds around ventures and initiatives that are both environmentally and economically beneficial.
