Abstract

With a focus on sustainability and fighting climate change, Sailcargo Inc. wants to support producers and environmental organizations local to the Bellbird Biological Corridor. To help them achieve this, we developed a structure and implementation plan for a sustainable reinvestment system. Using data collected from interviews, content analysis, and surveys, we designed a process in which funds donated by investors are placed into the reinvestment system to be dispersed in the form of small grants. The eligibility of these recipients is determined by a committee through a questionnaire. The committee will follow up on projects using indicators to determine their overall success. This plan will allow Sailcargo to successfully reach their goal within the Bellbird Biological Corridor.
