Nature-based solutions have the power to harness the world’s natural capital to help fight climate change, biodiversity loss, and poverty around the world.
We believe that there is huge potential for the private sector to help close the financing gap for nature restoration but a key barrier is the lack of an investable pipeline of projects. We support project developers around the world to turn their conservation ambitions into investible business models. Our expert team map, design, and support the scale-up of innovative regenerative business models across temperate and tropical regions. We use a combination of world-class project development expertise and concessional capital to nurture business models to the point of being able to attract private investment.
We deliver natural climate solutions that have high carbon impact, restore nature, and create value for the people living in those landscapes. We help to unlock capital to restore landscapes and de-risk investments into carbon projects through a combination of philanthropy, impact investing, and linkages with off-takers.
We are restoring some of the world’s most valuable landscapes, whilst delivering crucial environmental services at scale. We work with project developers to create a pipeline of investable projects by restoring and protecting degraded peatlands, and expanding species-rich grasslands, woodlands, and wetlands. We generate revenues for land managers through the valuation and sale of ecosystem services, including carbon credits, biodiversity outcomes, natural flood management, and water quality improvements. This approach creates new income streams for farmers and landowners seeking to improve the quality of landscapes and support biodiversity.
We are experts in designing financial instruments that are tailored to the needs of specific sectors and markets. The COVID-19 pandemic resulted in financial crises for small businesses, particularly in the global South. Our innovative revolving grants facility supports economically and environmentally sustainable businesses with the aim of protecting at-risk value chains and safeguarding the forest-dependent communities (‘forest stewards’) who rely upon them for income.
