Our Services

We work with a range of asset owners, asset managers, investment advisors, and enterprises to mobilize capital into regenerative natural resource investments. To that end, our firm provides expertise in three key areas: enterprise advisory, capital coordination, and investment advisory.

Client Case Studies

The Client
Fibershed is a pioneering nonprofit developing regional fiber systems that build soil, create community wealth, and protect the health of our biosphere.

The Project
In collaboration with Fibershed, we have developed the Regional Fiber Manufacturing Initiative (RFMI) to coordinate and implement a manufacturing strategy that will regionalize the production of textiles and contribute to climate solutions. 

The Approach
The RFMI has mapped the gaps in regional infrastructure, identified resources and capital for existing supply ecosystem partners, provided business and manufacturing technical assistance to supply ecosystem entrepreneurs, and educated and attracted investors who are interested in supporting a regional fiber manufacturing system.

The Results
PCG Advisory Services identified key regional infrastructure needs, provided business model support, and assisted with capital sourcing and investment vehicle development. 

The Client
Savanna Institute is a nonprofit laying the groundwork for widespread agroforestry in the Midwest.

The Project
By evolving its agricultural system to one that integrates row crops, livestock, and trees, the Midwest region can foster economic prosperity, vibrant rural communities, ecological resilience, and climate stability.

The Approach
Before these integrated agroforestry systems can scale, several bottlenecks across the supply ecosystem need to be addressed. We co-authored an Impact Investment Plan which offered solutions for each bottleneck, identified the most appropriate capital sources, and considered the ideal order of investment. 

The Results
As a result of our collaboration, The Savanna Institute is in the process of being awarded a grant which will give it a multi-year runway to implement its findings.

Integrated Finance

PCG uses integrated financial structures to find ways to match the time horizon and cash flow profile of biological systems. Typically, we work within the private debt, equity, and real assets sleeves of a portfolio, and we aim to use existing financial structures when possible. 

However, if there is not a good match between traditional financial structures and the investment, we explore integrated capital solutions that best capture the financial profile of the biological system. This often enables us to blend private, public and philanthropic pools of capital.

To realize the carbon sequestration and climate mitigation potential associated with implementation of regenerative agriculture practices, more than $700B in estimated net capital expenditures over the next 30 years will be needed.

Based on analysis of Project Drawdown’s published data, projected out to 2050, implementing climate-friendly agriculture practices could mitigate nearly 170 GtCO2e, while generating a nearly $10T net financial return.
