Advancing forest friendly economic development

The Amazon Investor Coalition is a global learning-and-collaboration platform that unites philanthropies, private investors and corporate buyers with governments, non-profits and allies to increase forest-friendly economic development and the rule of law across the Amazon region.

As a central resource for climate change mitigation and the global water cycle, the Amazon rainforest is vital for planetary sustainability. Investing in a regenerative Amazon bioeconomy is the highest-leverage climate mitigation opportunity of our time.

We work to ensure that the forest is worth more alive and standing than cut and burned.

Launched on September 16, 2020, at the United Nations 75 Global Governance Forum, we are a nonprofit operating as a collaborative program of the Earth Innovation Institute and the Giving Back Fund, with support from diverse partners including Partnerships for Forests and NEXUS.
