About Us

Ulupono Initiative is a Hawaii-focused impact investment firm. Ulupono – meaning to prosper through the right, or pono, path – is rooted in the local wisdom that a healthy environment and a healthy economy go hand in hand. Our mission is to improve the quality of life for island residents in three areas: more renewable energy, more locally produced food, and less waste. By supporting local efforts to improve our economy and environment, Ulupono Initiative ultimately aims to enrich the lives of Hawaii's people.
