“Pelion has supported Econos from the very beginnings in bringing our vision – to redefine the power of investments for the planet – to life.
We particularly value the multifaceted nature of our partnership besides us being able to leverage their extensive network, infrastructure, and expertise – ranging from collaboration on hands-on topics to strategic discussions.”
Why we invested
Econos provides a unique opportunity for private investors to diversify their portfolios to asset classes previously inaccessible. We are firm believers that – to reach financing needs in line with climate targets – mobilizing private capital will be an important lever. Theresa, Jill, and Tim manage to go about this issue with an innovative and distinctive approach. We look forward to partnering with the Econos team to help shift capital to opportunities that will foster a sustainable future.
