Ekos Brasil is a non-profit entity created in 2001 with the aim at protecting the biodiversity and promoting sustainability practices. In developing our activities we seek to bring together professionals with extensive experience and technical excellence in different areas, with the intention of enabling concrete actions that contribute to local and global sustainable development.
All of Brazil’s six biomes are home to some of the world’s richest biodiversity. Besides providing beautiful natural landscapes, protected areas generate ecosystem services that are essential to harbouring life, such as water resource quality, climate regulation, and air quality. In order to successfully preserve such elements, Ekos Brasil strives to develop management plans for ecosystem conservation, tourism, sustainable use and forest management in all of the varied regions and biomes of the Brazilian territory.
The presence of contaminants and pollutants in environmental resources can be severely damaging to the ecosystem’s health and all living organisms that habit the area, compromising the quality of such resources and restricting land use through the devaluation of properties. Ekos Brasil undertakes the responsibility of catalyzing knowledge in the remediation of contaminated sites through the organization of seminars and provision of knowledge-sharing networks.
Impact investments have the ability to materialize transformative technologies that would result in a highly positive influence on the local community and environment, increasing their potential for replication. Ekos Brasil supports “fund managers” and “investors” in structuring and operating sustainable investments through financial instruments of high social and environmental impact.
