About EVI

EVI is an integrated climate change company based in India, with offices in South East Asia and a rapidly expanding presence in the United States. The company’s central objective is to bring finance closer to technology and demonstrate the viability of market based solutions to mitigate climate change and achieve sustainable development.  EVI has two main businesses – one that focuses on the carbon market and sustainable development and the second that develops clean energy projects.

Since its inception in 2004, EVI has grown to employ over 120 individuals, is the country’s third largest carbon credit company and has a portfolio of over 400 MW in a combination of solar, wind, biomass, and waste-to-energy technologies.  In 2008, the company was invested in by IDFC Project Equity[1], a leading infrastructure equity investment manager in India.

 

Moving forward, EVI’s next step is to expand its’ businesses to clean energy generation and extend its footprint at the global level.  Communications takes on a key function as the company makes this transition, from a start-up to a corporate enterprise. In doing so, EVI aims to truly demonstrate climate change as a business and successfully combine finance with technology to create mitigation solutions for climate change and sustainable development.

 

The company is driven by a team of innovative, motivated individuals who employ their knowledge, skill, and creativity to develop and refine a profitable carbon market & clean energy business model.  The breadth of experience and strength of education represented at EVI provide a solid foundation on which to build a global climate change company.
