Our 10 Years of Impact
We have been a pioneer in distributed clean energy for 10 years. Joining forces with Mirova means we can accelerate climate solutions in emerging markets.
When we started SunFunder a decade ago, we had a clear purpose: to solve the financing bottleneck for off-grid solar companies in Africa. All in service of a more equitable and sustainable world, addressing climate change and energy access.
We have been lucky to work with and grow alongside so many of the entrepreneurs and others who have helped drive a sector with purpose and impact.
We want to commemorate this journey with you with this deeper look at our 10 Years of Impact report.
A few things stand out for us over this decade. The first is our impact, which has always been the primary goal – and continues to be. We are proud to share this deeper look at our decade of impact.
The second is our team and the incredible people we have counted as colleagues and friends over the years. As well as building Mirova SunFunder, many have gone on to play major roles in other organizations and the sector as a whole.
Third, we feel strongly that the business we built is an exemplar of staying true to your values in order to succeed. We chose a growth path based on long-term sustainability, which is what established our business and enabled our impact. Values build value.
Beyond our company and team, it really has taken the proverbial village. We want to thank so many people who have been part of this journey, from our angel investors a decade ago through to our new colleagues at Mirova and all our partners in between. This look back is in gratitude to all of you.
We are so excited for the next 10 years – even while the effects of climate change take hold and the urgency rises. There is much work to do to significantly scale emerging market clean energy and climate solutions. We look forward to working with you all for the sustainable future we believe is possible.
