Award-winning climate & environmental risk management systems for agri-lenders and outgrower produce buyers
What we do
F3 Life provides tools to agri-lenders and outgrower produce buyers for the development of sustainable and climate-smart farming systems by their credit clients or contract farmers.
Are you an agri-lender?
F3 Life helps agri-lenders manage the climate and environmental risk associated with their smallholder lending portfolios, for improved profitability and to meet climate disclosure and risk mitigation requirements
Are you a produce buyer?
F3 Life helps outgrower produce buyers manage the climate and environmental risk of their smallholder supply chains for improved profitability, sustainability and enhanced wellbeing of outgrower farmers
Access to Capital
For agri-lenders and outgrowers which use the F3 Life farming systems, F3 Life facilitates access to environmental and climate capital, often on improved terms to capital otherwise available in the market.
F3 Life Tools
F3 Life provides:
Sustainable and Climate-Smart Land Management System Designs
We provide off-the-peg climate-smart or sustainable land-management requirements for inclusion as terms in credit agreements or produce purchase agreements, which specify the land-management measures that farmers should implement in order to increase their productivity, climate resilience and reduce their credit default risk.
Environmental impact monitoring and reporting
We provide a low cost and highly-effective monitoring system which allows agri-lenders or outgrower produce buyers to ascertain farmers are in compliance with the sustainable or climate-smart farming practices of their loan or produce purchase agreements, and report against defined environmental impact metrics.
We provide training systems for organisations which would like to include F3 Life approaches in their environmental projects. The types of organisations which use our systems include financial institutins, funds, outgrowers and environmental project developers. The systems are online and accessible anywhere.
Deal Documentation Tools
For organisations which are designing climate-smart lending or climate-smart outgrowing investments from the ground-up, we provide deal documentation to reduce investment costs.
Funding Application Content
There are currently many sources of funding to help develop climate-smart lending and outgrowing projects. Our funding application content helps this process.
