Our journey to a greener future: DGB Group's strategic expansion into the French market

In an age where environmental sustainability is not just a preference but a necessity, companies across the globe are stepping up to integrate eco-friendly practices into their core operations. A pioneer in this green revolution is DGB Group NV, a trailblazer in carbon project development and ecosystem restoration. Today, we are thrilled to share a monumental leap in our journey toward a more sustainable and inclusive future—our expansion into the French market.

A strategic move with a green vision

Our expansion into the French market is a significant stride in amplifying our impact on global sustainability. By launching a fully translated French version of our website and committing to publishing future press releases in French, we are not only broadening our horizons but also strengthening our engagement with the Francophone community. This initiative ensures comprehensive access to our projects, vision, and the tangible steps we are taking towards environmental improvement for French-speaking audiences.

Engaging the French market with purpose and passion

The French capital markets, known for their robust support for small and mid-cap companies, present a fertile ground for our ESG/sustainable products. Our planned dual listing on Euronext Paris underscores our dedication to the French market, reflecting our belief in the mutual benefits this expansion brings to DGB and French investors alike. We will provide an update on this planned listing later this year. Our projects in nature restoration and carbon credit (carbon unit) generation are more than just business ventures; they are our commitment to fostering a sustainable future.

A glimpse into DGB Group's green journey

Since our inception, DGB has been at the forefront of environmental sustainability, managing high-quality projects that emphasise ecosystem restoration, conservation, and biodiversity enrichment. Our boots-on-the-ground approach has enabled us to deliver verified carbon units for a significant positive environmental impact. As the carbon markets continue to expand, our project development pipeline has grown to 60.1 million carbon units and 19 projects—seven of which are in advanced stages, marking a substantial +58% year-over-year growth. This expansion is not just in numbers but in the diversity of our projects, including ventures into plastic and biodiversity credits.

Our projects span across critical environmental and conservation areas, especially in West Africa, a region pivotal to our restoration efforts. Our projects range from reforestation in the Republic of Côte d'Ivoire to biodiversity projects in Cameroon and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. These initiatives reflect our commitment not only to carbon unit generation but also to creating a lasting positive impact on local ecosystems and communities. Our memorandums of understanding with the governments of these countries showcase our collaborative efforts towards environmental restoration and biodiversity conservation.

Financing the future of our planet

The financing of our operations and projects through the issuance of green bonds and forward carbon units at discounted rates signifies our innovative approach to funding environmental sustainability. Our CEO, Duijvestijn, envisions 2024 as the year DGB starts generating revenue from its first carbon credits issuance, marking a pivotal moment in our journey towards contributing to a sustainable economy.
