Open-source eco-credit tools
Experimental tools designed to build community-owned and managed eco-credit groups and build environmental, social and financial wealth.
What is an eco-credit group?
Community eco-credit groups are self-managed community groups of approximately 30 people which own and manage a revolving credit fund which is loaned amongst group members. Groups include requirements for nature protection and restoration in loan terms.
Group borrowers repay loans with interest or a fee to their own fund and undertake environmental restoration activities, thereby building real community financial, social and environmental wealth. You can use Greenfi's free and open-source tools to support eco-credit group recruitment, set-up and operation as shown below.
The Need We Meet
Greenfi is an open-source organisation set up to develop and test eco-credit groups as community-level sustainable financing mechanisms which support communities and individuals to protect and restore local ecosystems. We meet this need by providing methodologies, knowledge and tools needed to design, monitor and sustainably finance local protection and restoration of nature by empowering communities to form and manage their own eco-credit groups.
Programme Design & Funding Applications
Greenfi tools, services and know-how are available on a free, open-source basis to local or international environmental project developers to help them reduce the cost and speed of designing and applying for funds for implementation and further testing of the eco-credit approach.
