"Latin America and the Caribbean is the world leader in nature and biodiversity, playing a pivotal role in the global climate balance," said James Scriven, CEO of IDB Invest. "The private sector has a leading role to play to scale up sustainable business solutions and mobilize impact investors to the region."

Latin America and the Caribbean is home to the Amazon Rainforest, which absorbs one fourth of all total CO2 on earth. There is growing scientific consensus that the Amazon Basin is reaching an ecological tipping point and urgent action is needed.

"The world has changed dramatically over the last few years," said Mr. Scriven. "The operating principles from before are no longer sufficient to address today's complex and overlapping challenges. Through our new originate-to-share business model, IDB Invest is connecting private sector clients and like-minded investors who see the potential of Latin America and the Caribbean."

The Amazon region comprises nine countries in Latin America and the Caribbean with over 60 million people, including hundreds of indigenous groups. The Amazon region is critical to ecosystems worldwide, providing 40% of Latin America's fresh water.
