Zambian Forestry Project

Case Study

One of our first Impact Investments started as a small forestry project in East Africa in 2009. We provided seed capital, brokered the land purchase and employed the staff. 15 years later, the project has grown to 300 hectares of farming land and 1 600 hectares of forestry, with 90 houses, a school, potable water, a medical clinic and many cottage industries supporting the local community. Demonstrating the power of even small impact investing projects to change peoples’ lives, and the world, for the better.


Durrants Farm Solar Project, UK

L&P were among the very earliest investors in solar power plants, investing £10mn in a UK solar project in 2011. The project produced as exceptional return for investors when sold in 2015, and helped to advance the nascent solar investment industry in Europe. L&P used a new specialist solar investment manager to locate and manage the project, that manager’s first solar project. That firm has now grown into one of the largest dedicated solar investment managers in Europe, which has helped to funnel billions of euros into solar farms, demonstrating again that small targeted positive impact projects can have large positive impact benefits over time.
