Solutions to environmental challenges
Fund managers we invest in identify strong demand globally for structural and cost-efficient solutions to environmental challenges across Energy, Water, Food, and Waste. One particular fund manger we invest in has identified solutions for preserving biodiversity as one of many opportunities of interest.
A deep dive into the ‘Blue Economy’ which is worth trillions of dollars and includes a rich palette of resources, providing jobs, livelihoods and food security can be a source of great investment opportunity. At stake are tangible ‘blue resources’ such as fish stocks and deep sea oil, but also intangibles such as coastal ways of life and carbon sequestration.
Some of the companies being targeted are leading the field of the sustainable use of ocean resources through a focus on energy transition, environmental protection and equality and inclusive growth. This will help advance the fight against climate change and ensure that the oceans can continue to function as a sink for carbon emissions.

Singing Up Spirit of the Land exhibition
Artworks included in Singing Up Spirit of the Land exhibition
Artist Jo Fay Duncan
Redland Art Gallery, Cleveland
March 28 to May 9, opening night 6pm March 26, 2021
Uncle Bob Distinguished Ngugi elder and Quandamooka Traditional Owner (Dr. Robert Anderson OAM) is the focus of art exhibition Singing Up Spirit of the Land. Contemporary digital and painted portrait work capture not just likeness of the elder, but spiritual meaning behind sand minings end on Minjerribah, North Stradbroke Island in 2019, a result of native title determinations granted to the Quandamooka peoples in 2011. The integrity of these artworks are testament to an enduring relationship between Aboriginal elder Uncle Bob Anderson and artist Jo Fay Duncan identifies as an ecological artist who is second generation Scot, residing on Quandamooka Country.
The painting in the background depicts him walking Country once more and the swirling spirit of the land beneath and behind him. This painting recognises Uncle Bob’s role in making Native Title happen and celebrates this momentous occasion in Australia’s post-colonial history.
Whilst deeply embedded in a local narrative, these works conceptually concern global issues of earths continued exploitation through extractive processes like mining, its redress and rejuvenation. It experiments with inter-cultural collaboration and finds common ground in our collective relationship to the Land.
