I strongly believe that the solution to climate crisis and other environmental issues lies in the ability to mainstream these matters with business and make it an inevitable part of conventional finance.  With hands-on industry experience in investment banking and environmental finance, I decided to take on a more direct role in the fight against climate change by starting a business that can take an innovative position in climate change management.  Since 2008, we have been serving the public & private sector in their transition to a low carbon economy by taking a pioneering role in carbon finance.  I am honored to be part of a redemptive story as we need to solve the most detrimental crisis that has ever been faced by humankind.  As Mundo Verde Climate, we want to assure that we have the motivation and the technical capacity to empower all our stakeholders to manage their risks in climate change all the while benefitting from the opportunities of a new low carbon economy.  We know we can make a historic shift by standing together to accelerate the implementation for climate change mitigation and adaptation.  We are the story tellers of our lives and our surroundings. Mundo Verde Climate is here to help to write an inspiring story of hope, hard work and resilience to stop climate change and restore the ecosystem.
