The Capitals Coalition is pleased to announce that two new Capital Hubs based in the Caribbean and China have joined our global community.
Capitals Hubs are formed by communities of practitioners that develop and scale the capitals approach within specific regional or national contexts or within industries or sectors. They connect leaders and leading initiatives to ensure that people are collaborating across the system and provide a space for geographic, sector or context-specific challenges, opportunities and solutions to be explored between stakeholders.
The work of the Hubs is fed back to the Capitals Coalition and informs our work areas, priorities and strategy. Capitals Hubs evolve organically, often by building on existing networks, and are supported remotely by the Coalition.
Lead organization ANSA Merchant Bank
ANSA Merchant Bank have launched the Caribbean Natural Capital Hub alongside The Cropper Foundation. The hybrid launch event included representation from senior executives of the ANSA McAL Group and Financial Sector, members of the diplomatic community, international funding agencies and business groups.
The Caribbean Hub will assist businesses in the region to integrate the capitals approach through specialist events and webinars. They aim to launch grants for SMEs and start-ups in Trinidad and Tobago and grants for innovators in Barbados tackling environmental issues.
“Through our natural capital report and the launch of the first Caribbean Natural Capital Hub, we will share our journey of bettering our interaction with nature and the communities that depend on her, and thus act as a catalyst for wider-scale business action towards a more sustainable future.”
