LCF3 – Livelihoods Carbon Fund
Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) targeted
Description of the Project
Livelihoods Venture created Livelihoods Carbon Fund 1 in 2011 and Livelihoods Carbon Fund 2 in 2017 to leverage the carbon economy to finance ecosystem restoration, agroforestry and rural energy projects to improve food security for rural communities and increase farmers’ revenues. The funds provide upfront financing to project developers for large-scale project implementation and maintenance over periods of 10 to 20 years. Livelihoods Venture is a social business based in Paris, is the initiator of several Livelihoods funds and is the Investment Advisor of LCF3.
In 2021, Livelihoods Venture launched Livelihoods Carbon Fund SICAV-RAIF (LCF3) as a regulated Luxembourg fund with a term of 24 years. LCF3 invests in large-scale natural ecosystem restoration, agroforestry, and rural energy projects in developing countries. LCF3 includes 14 international corporate investors as well as financial investors. LCF3 aims at improving the lives of 2 million people while delivering up to 30 million carbon offsets over the entire duration of the fund.
Innpact Fund Management S.A. was selected by Livelihoods Venture as its partner for the launch of the fund and the onboarding of investors in 2021. Our Alternative Investment Fund Manager (AIFM) worked closely with Livelihoods Venture on all procedures required by the AIFM to set up and launch the fund as a Reserved Alternative Investment Fund (RAIF). Based on the advisory model, our AIFM services include the core functions of risk, portfolio management and investment committee. Further advisory services are provided by Innpact S.A.
