Mitigate risks and maximize returns through our exciting carbon finance opportunities. Deploy your carbon finance with us and become involved in developing nature-based solutions at scale.
As the leading Dutch project developer of high-quality, large-scale carbon and biodiversity projects accredited by third parties, DGB harnesses market forces and the access to capital needed to accelerate Earth’s reforestation. Invest in our carbon projects to help scale our operations and impact.
Research by EY indicates the price of voluntary carbon offsets will likely triple between now and 2035 and could rise as much as six times.
Carbon credit demand is fundamentally proven, while global megatrends drive and underpin our future growth opportunities.
Through forward contracts, we can create binding agreements in which DGB commits to deliver emission reductions to the buyer at a predefined time and price. These contracts are a great way to eliminate market price risks and secure the desired transaction price months or years in advance. This arrangement protects DGB from falling market prices and the buyer from rising market prices.
Your carbon finance will directly benefit our Agriculture, Forestry, and Other Land Use (AFOLU) projects. For instance, it allows us to scale our Cameroon afforestation project or increase the habitat for endangered chimpanzees in Uganda. Please contact us to learn more about how we utilise carbon finance for maximum impact.
A quality offset credit represents at least 1 metric tonne of additional, permanent, and otherwise unclaimed CO2 emissions reductions or removals and creates positive environmental and social impacts. Our credits are validated and verified by independent third-party certification bodies.
Besides adding to your bottom line, our Carbon Finance Projects create the following benefits.
DGB not only assures emissions reductions but benefits for local communities too. For instance, by providing jobs, increasing food security by planting fruit trees, or improving health by distributing clean and energy-efficient cookstoves, we improve the livelihoods of local communities.
Due to lower human capital accumulation and a lack of employment opportunities, African women are particularly vulnerable. We empower these women by employing them at our nurseries. Moreover, our cookstove projects help reduce the time women and children spend collecting firewood.
The conservation of wildlife and biodiversity is crucial to protect our planet and to ensure our collective wellbeing as we move into the twenty-first century. Through carbon finance, we get the chance to right past wrongs and restore the loss of biodiversity that has taken place in the past.
DGB has a strong project pipeline of nature-based projects worldwide, generating income from carbon offsets. Look at the projects we're successfully running together with landowners and investors.
The Bulindi Chimpanzee Habitat Restoration project aims to rapidly restore the declining chimpanzee habitat in Bulindi, Uganda, through active afforestation and community involvement.
This investment, in what is a sustainable forest management process, also helps conserve water in one of Kenya’s key catchment areas.
The project has multiple locations, however, most of the trees are planted in three villages in the Yoko Sub Division in the Centre Region of Cameroon, spanning an area of 2,300–3,000 hectares.
