Join the movement towards a more sustainable future by investing in green initiatives and supporting the transition to a low-carbon, environmentally friendly economy.
Businesses and individuals are increasingly under pressure to improve their sustainability and reduce their carbon footprint. On a local, regional, and international level, there is rising demand for innovative green products and a need for carbon capture, agriculture, nature conservation, and biodiversity solutions.
We can positively shape the future through sustainable investment choices. Investing in a sustainable future is not only a matter of principle but also a sensible financial decision. At DGB, we believe that every investment should have a positive impact on society and the environment. This is why we offer a range of green investment options, specifically in verified nature-based projects, that have a positive effect on nature and biodiversity.
Green investment has many advantages that provide an opportunity for investors:
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
When investing with DGB, you can be confident in the quality of your investment. All our nature-based projects are verified by independent verification bodies, so you can be sure that your investment positively impacts the environment and society.
