    When we founded Enviu in 2004, our belief was the same as it is today: An inclusive economy that serves people and planet.

To instigate this economy we build social multinationals that address social and environmental issues, and drive market development. Companies with high impact in the domains of financial inclusion, circular economy, and food security.
