Then we'll talk about the different benefits of green bond investment and why each one is important. Finally, we'll explain why investing in green bonds is a good idea for both individuals and businesses. So grab yourself a coffee, and let's get started.
What are green bonds?
DGB green bonds are a type of investment that helps finance environmental projects. The money from green bonds is used to fund things like solar and wind energy, energy efficiency, and nature-based solutions like ours. Green bonds are an important way to invest in the future of our planet, and they offer a number of benefits for both investors and the environment.
Different types of green bonds available to invest in
There are a few different types of green bonds available for investors. The most common type is the corporate green bond, which is issued by a company to finance green projects. This can be anything from constructing a new solar farm to retrofitting an existing building with energy-efficient windows. Green bonds can also be issued by governments and other organizations. These types of green bonds are usually used to finance large-scale projects, like building a new public transit system or developing a green infrastructure plan.
Why invest in DGB’s Green Bonds?
So now, let's discuss the top reasons to invest in green bonds and how you can reap a wide range of benefits by doing so! Below you'll find five of the most popular reasons to invest.
1: They act as a hedge against inflation
Central banks across the world are simultaneously hiking up interest rates in response to widespread inflation, and the world may be edging toward a global recession as we move into 2023. With a financial crisis certainly on the cards for the upcoming year, a lot of people are looking for ways to prepare and protect themselves against this major risk. One way of doing so is by investing in worthwhile projects. In fact, France has just introduced a 15-year inflation-linked green bond, the first inflation-linked green bond ever issued. This demonstrates the growing interest in such investments and how even governments are in support.
2. DGB is the first and only listed company focused on natural development
We receive a lot of support for DGB green bonds based on the fact that we are on a mission to combat climate change head-on. And since we must act now to resolve this global issue, we chose to be a publicly listed company. Did you know that scientists estimate that over one million species will be lost by 2050, meaning 1 in 10 animals and plants will be extinct in the next 28 years! At DGB we will continue to fight for our planet, and so we are the first listed reforestation company in the world, and we have the ability to leverage financial markets to achieve our planetary goals faster.

3. Visible upward trend within DGB
We started out in 2021 and have so far acquired companies such as Corekees and Statix, and have started investing heavily in our company, our projects, and our people. Due to these investments, we closed the year with a loss but set ourselves up for massive future growth. In 2022, we received our first sales and further expanded our project pipeline. All in all, our outlook is extremely positive, which is good news for those thinking of investing in DGB green bonds.
4. You invest in existing projects
This is what sets us apart. At DGB, you don’t pay for scouting the projects, but for scaling projects we’ve already vetted. This gives you the peace of mind that your investment is going towards a worthwhile project that our experts have already done our homework on to ensure it generates a positive environmental impact.
In fact, in Bulindi, Uganda, we have been helping to restore, create and expand habitats for chimpanzees which sadly have been in rapid decline. Through active reforestation, we have been able to capture over 691 million tons of CO2 and have planted over 300 million trees. In Cameroon, we will capture over 5 million tons of CO2 by planting over 3 million trees across three villages in the Yoko Sub Division in the Centre Region of Cameroon, spanning an area of 2,300 to 3,000 hectares.
5. High transparency
As the only listed company in our field, we are required to be highly transparent to all our investors. We are legally obliged to publish annual and quarterly reports and press releases to inform, educate and update investors in green bonds on the projects they are helping towards. This means when you invest in DGB green bonds, you will never be kept in the dark and will always be fully aware of how your investment is helping to combat climate change.
