Our Vision​

Bringing complex research into practical solutions​

My vision is to collaborate with professionals across all sectors to develop innovative solutions to pressing issues like resource scarcity, poor water management, and lack of funding for waste management. For instance, implementing advanced water recycling systems can address poor water management while promoting sustainability..

By incorporating sustainability as a core principle, we can transform profit-driven enterprises into forces for positive change. My aim is to create a knowledge hub and innovation platform where research and collaboration can spark ideas and accelerate funding for critical issues. By gathering insights and expertise from various fields, I aspire to nurture collaboration and fuel progress in addressing global challenges.

Through articles, case studies, and partnerships, my goal is to inspire and support groundbreaking initiatives that lead to tangible, impactful solutions. This vision is built on the belief that informed, collective action can drive sustainable development and create a more equitable world for future generations.

About the author

Thank you for taking the time to visit my page. My name is Matteo Arellano, and my journey into sustainable finance began at a young age with a venture to create postcards promoting tourism in remote areas. As I matured, I traveled through Latin America, volunteering in educational programs for youth in countries such as Peru, Guatemala, and Mexico. These experiences highlighted the significant educational disparities between developed and developing nations, making me acutely aware of how the lack of knowledge perpetuates not only material poverty but also impedes governance and societal progress.

With this understanding, I pursued my studies at the Rotterdam School of Management. Thanks to my father’s dedication and support, I graduated cum laude in International Business Administration and later specialized in Accounting and Financial Management for my Master’s Degree. The motto of my alma mater, “Become a Force for Positive Change,” continues to inspire me to contribute positively to the world.

Recently, I traveled to West Africa to immerse myself in the local music, language, and business environments. I observed the significant lack of funding and resources available to the youth, despite their immense potential. Motivated by this realization, I decided to create this blog focused on researching, proposing, and creating new initiatives for sustainable investment while respecting the environment and local customs. My aim is to establish paradigms where economic profit aligns with equitable and fair business practices.

Regarding my professional experience, I have successfully completed all levels of the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) Certification. I have worked at the European Investment Fund (EIF) and the European Investment Bank (EIB), specializing in Operational Risk and the Restructuring and Resolutions (RR) department. In these roles, I provided critical insights and strategies to assist companies in severe financial distress. Currently, I serve as a Global Analytics Engineer at Cargill, a leading agricultural company, where I develop data pipelines and automate financial processes to drive efficiency and innovation.

Driven by my mission to bridge the gap between sustainability, economics, and finance, I founded the blog “Ecowater Economics.” Through this platform, I aim to educate and inform the general public about the critical intersections of these fields. My blog addresses vital topics such as reducing inequality, fostering sustainable economic growth, and creating inclusive social systems that benefit all layers of society. I delve into the significance of sustainable practices in both urban and rural development, the impact of economic policies on environmental conservation, and innovative financial strategies that promote long-term prosperity while safeguarding our planet.
