Extensive track record in global
Since 2005, our team has evaluated over
300 carbon projects around the globe. We have
invested in 25 projects, which equates to ~65M
tonnes of carbon credits.
Global demand for voluntary carbon credits could increase by a factor of 15 by 2030 and a factor of 100 by 2050
In the net-zero economy, carbon removal & storage will take center-stage in the carbon markets and will be accompanied by further development of the voluntary and regulatory carbon markets.
Nature-based solutions could account for 65-85% of total supply potential by 2030
Government imposed cap and trade programs have failed to achieve necessary reductions targets.
These emitters need to acquire “high-fidelity” credits to avoid reputational risk, yet there are a limited number of high-fidelity nature based solution projects to pursue.
