How does this work?

Drawing on 24 years in global markets & finance, business & nonprofit development, conservation and sustainability, I partner with purpose driven organizations to forward solutions on critical challenges. I use learned insights from the private and NGO sectors to benefit the scope of client impact. By marrying passion and pragmatism, client partnerships expand the reach and power of a mission. Kingfisher Parker provides tailored advisory, campaigns and projects for nature based programs. We can initiate, expand and enhance CSR and ESG initiatives to integrate programs that align with company values, support environmental conservation and benefit employee and community wellbeing. An organization can use carbon offsets and renewable energy certificates to address a GHG footprint and accounting. In addition to taking action on climate change these projects can benefit biodiversity, water & air quality, poverty and gender equality. The practice at Kingfisher Parker supports UN Sustainable Development Goals 3, 6, 7, 11, 13, 14, 15 & 17
