Integrated Capital Fibers Fund
Building a more equitable and regenerative textile industry
Why we invest in regenerative fibers
Environmental equity and textiles
Currently, “market-rate” returns from global textile industry investments reflect a reliance on the global oil and gas industry and the pervasive use of extractive labor practices. At the same time, U.S.-based fiber producers and processors struggle to access capital to build more just, equitable, and regenerative practices.
Recognizing that natural fiber and dye crops can and should play a key role in vibrant, economically viable regenerative agriculture, Sustainable Agriculture and Food Systems Funders (SAFSF) and Fibershed joined forces to develop a capital solution that considers industry’s effects on people and planet.
Mission Driven Finance is proud to work with SAFSF and Fibershed on the Integrated Capital Fibers Fund, a flexible and catalytic financing vehicle tailored to the needs of smaller U.S. natural fiber and textile producers and processors with a specific focus on environmental equity.
Working for people and planet
The Integrated Capital Fibers Fund was selected to the 2023 Transformative 25 list of funds, banks, and initiatives that are demonstrating the power of integrated capital designed to reimagine the finance system to work for people and planet.
