Our Positive Impact Thesis

Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals requires large scale business and infrastructure solutions, which in turn require an equal magnitude of financing from mainstream commercial and fiduciary institutions.

Rhiza Capital is a financial intermediary acting in direct response to the challenge of financing the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).  We build Positive Impact (PI) financial products, programs and partnerships that localize the SDGs and connect community to opportunity. Rhiza supports the adoption of a positive impact approach, so Canadians can step up their positive contribution to the economy, society and the environment, and actively participate in bridging the financing gap for sustainable development.

The Positive Impact Initiative (PI) works with banks, investors, corporations and the public sector to foster a new set of private-sector, impact-based solutions to the SDGs.

Rhiza Capital is adopting the PI framework, tools and strategies to localize this global initiative, in Canada. 


*Rhiza, Greek in origin, refers to a root structure.  Rhiza Capital is a Certified B Corporation intent on growing local economies and healthy communities by connecting root capital to impact ventures.

Impact investments are those made into companies, organizations, and funds with the intention to generate social and environmental impact alongside a financial return.
