EMF Sponsor Lunch 3 November 2011

It is not every day you learn how with a simple plan deserts can be made fertile, and how with a little help poor mountain coffee farmers can benefit from the luxury niche market. Inspiring talks from Dennis Karpes of the Naga Foundation and David Browning of the Coffee Initiative that get you out of your comfortable chair and wanting to help make a difference. The EMF Sponsor lunch In the quiet elegance of Restaurant De Kas brought together 120 guests - a piebald company of top industrialists and entrepreneurs. The organic food was refined, the atmosphere informal, the conversation relaxed. A perfect setting to make or renew contacts and to reflect on those less privileged.

In the words of its founder Allerd Stikker, EMF is “incredibly grateful” for the support it receives to continue its mission. We are especially indebted to our board member Jan Vet for organizing the event at rare spare moments, from winding mountain roads in Switzerland or hotel rooms in London and Tel Aviv. Our special thanks go to the Rabobank and Korn/Ferry International for once again so generously sponsoring the lunch itself. We also thank Greenfield Capital Partners,Kahn Scheepvaart, Linklaters, Loyens & Loeff, Micro Water Facility, NH Hoteles, NIBC Bank, Redevco, The Incradible Company, Unilever Ventures, Waterland Private Equity Investments and Wolters Kluwer for funding  a table. And last but not least, we thank the many guests who joined EMF as a Friend at the lunch. With their collective support EMF will continue to search for ways to ensure those deprived of safe water secure access to this basic necessity.

Investment Funds for Water and Sanitation: Y/N?

Social impact investing is on the rim to become main streamed, this will take another 3-5 years, but the trend is clear: more and more high net worth individuals prefer to invest instead of donate, taking a more business wise approach. Investing in Micro Finance Institutions (MFI) is a clear example impact investing pays off, from a financial point of view. However the social and environmental impact of commercial operating MFIs' is not a given fact of their business. Most of these institutes realize they have to improve, so why don't MFIs' invest in water and sanitation?
