Impact

Creating positive impact is at the DNA of YAPU Solutions. This is where we started and we still do it today.

Positive Impact

Our digital tools support financial institutions with an automated credit analysis to understand the economic and financial reality of their clients.
We enable Financial institutions to become agents of change: Due to lower operating costs and a complete view on their risks, they can become champions of financial inclusion and ecologic transformation.
The automated credit analysis also contains climate indicators highlighting the exposure of given clients and the sensitivity of their crops. Based on this information our customers can leverage taxonomies of nature-based solutions provided by YAPU to increase not only a clients productivity, but also their resilience against climate events.

Scale for Resilience

In 2021 we established with our partner CIAT/CGIAR and GAWA Capital Scale for Resilience. This initiative forms part of the UNFCCC Race to Resilience.
