Significant opportunities

Why invest in green projects?

Green investment has many advantages that provide an opportunity for investors:

Earn strong returns

Investing in green projects can be a smart financial decision. They often provide solid returns with stable cash flow and many enjoy the benefit of tax exemption. Our verified projects are no exception. They offer attractive financial returns while also helping to create a more sustainable future.

Carbon markets are growing

McKinsey & Company estimates that the annual demand for carbon offsets could reach 1.5–2 gigatonnes by 2030 and 7–13 gigatonnes by 2050. Carbon prices could also rise to $80–$150 per tonne by 2035, estimates the EY Net Zero Centre.

Diversify your portfolio

Incorporating green investments into your portfolio can help to diversify your investments and reduce your overall risk. Our nature-based projects offer the opportunity to participate in a new and fast-growing market, with a healthy demand, where you can reap the benefits of early investment.

Impactful contribution

By investing in green projects, you make a meaningful contribution to a better, more sustainable future. All humans and wildlife depend on healthy ecosystems for survival. We must therefore conserve biodiversity to protect all life on Earth. Our verified projects not only help reduce carbon emissions but also protect and restore nature and biodiversity.

Attract interest

Green investment can attract positive public attention due to awareness and interest, making fundraising much more accessible. Green investment can also build trust with stakeholders and meet stakeholder requirements, who are increasingly interested in the social and environmental impact of the companies they support.

Global commitment

Investing in green projects is a growing trend, with global commitments increasing. Nations, industries, and companies are committing to meeting net-zero goals—and investors and the financial sector need to join this movement. By investing in our verified projects, you join a community of leading investors committed to making a positive impact through investments.
