This movement has resulted in a global groundswell of principles and platforms intended to guide a new investment and development mandate across geographies and industries. International targets such as those presented by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and guided by principles such as the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment (UNPRI) have formed a foundation from which an innovative approach to investment and economic growth and development has emerged.
Talmar was established in 2011 with the mission to serve the developing world with world-class impact investment and project development expertise, which give rise to the establishment of new, investable businesses that serve as stimulants for local economic empowerment, social growth and the regeneration of natural capital. Profit with purpose!
Talmar aims to address and bridge the broadening gap that exists between established and less formal economic spheres around the globe, through the development of mutually beneficial economic opportunities within emerging economies and developing countries. Talmar emerged against a backdrop of an international investment community and development agenda that has, in recent years, begun to increase its focus of identifying, quantifying, mitigating and minimising the potential negative ecological and socio-economic impacts that may be generated by traditional investment and economic development models.
