Arlington, VA — The Nature Conservancy and JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE:JPM) announced today the establishment of NatureVest, a new initiative of The Conservancy. The program will seek to transform the way we protect natural capital — the soil, clean air and water, and other valuable resources that nature provides. NatureVest will capitalize on the growing impact investment sector to create a platform to advance investment in conservation. As part of that effort, NatureVest will convene investors; develop and execute innovative financial transactions; and continue to build an investment pipeline across multiple sectors, including agriculture, fisheries and environmental markets. JPMorgan Chase is the founding sponsor of NatureVest and has committed to provide multi-year support for its launch and development.
