As part of Prizma, a boutique environmental and social advisory practice, I have been fortunate to be able to contribute to some unique projects. These include the Laudato Si Wind development in Penonomé Panama, which was recently visited by former US President Bill Clinton, as well as Lucara Diamond, which recently recovered a 1,111 carat gem quality diamond in Bostwana. You can read more about these projects and Prizma's involvement below. Shortlink: http://wp.me/p27qSt-NR
As highlighted in a short story, Prizma’s team assisted the successive developers and investors of the Laudato Si wind park in Penonomé (from Phase I through to Phase III) to align their projects’ impact assessments and related management plans with the IFC Performance Standards and Equator Principles.
Prizma’s efforts contributed to our clients’ plans to mobilize sustainable finance from institutions ranging from the World Bank Group’s IFC to Austria’s OeEB. Congrats to InterEnergy and all others involved in the Laudato Si wind park in Penonomé, Panama!
Moving below ground: For the past three years, Prizma has been involved with Lucara Diamond, a new diamond mining company. Recently, Lucara announced recovering a 1,111 carat gem quality diamond. This stone is the largest ever to be recovered in Botswana. Shortly thereafter, Lucara announced the recovery of additional large diamonds, including an 813 carat stone. Congrats to all those involved with Lucara and its Karowe Mine in Botswana.
