Tailor-made Impact Platforms

South Pole develops not-for-profit climate impact platforms that address the specific needs of private, public and non-profit clients.

Why new impact platforms?

Existing impact platforms may not meet the specific needs of donors in terms of geography, sector, investment type, and impact delivery schedule. New impact platforms can be tailored to specific investor needs.

New impact platforms also offer specific communication and branding opportunities for clients, and enable tailor-made designs.
