"Carbon credits, the permissions to emit carbon and other greenhouse gases, have been one of the best-performing commodities over the past five years. European carbon prices nearly tripled in 2021. Many think prices can still go higher. As these benefits become more recognized and valued, they are seen by investors as financial returns that outperform investments in traditional companies. Nature Based solutions are sustainable real asset that both diversifies an investment portfolio provides exposure to forestry and underlying land value growth opportunities."

Frequently Asked Questions

1- How high is the impact of these projects and how is their impact measured?

Our projects in Sub Saharan East and West Africa can create the highest impact and therefore generate high quality offsets for investors. There is potential to scale up substantially for both Kenya and Cameroon projects for which we have secured the land. They can also generate exaggerated social impact per dollar invested due to the low development base and lack of available capital. The long standing relationship we have established with local partners in those regions, ensures the sustainability of the impact generated and the strength of returns. Impact is measured based on additionality of the projects, as if what would have happened if such projects didn’t take place.

2- How nature conservation projects make an impact on people’s life in local communities?

We work on a revenue sharing basis with the local communities and by planting fruit trees alongside native species, we create a source of revenue for them. Our nature based projects also create jobs for the locals and provide training for them by fostering a strong relationship with them and the local partners.

3- What are the risks associated with the projects (country risk etc.) and how we manage them?

We establish a go-no go framework with the technical team from the start of a project when we decide on the work undertaken. This planning document provides all the potential threats and risks that we may encounter throughout the project. And action scenarios based on these, are determined with all our stakeholders and included in the framework. This ensures all the potential risks are identified and managed accordingly. Risk Management and monitoring are a critical part of the process we follow to ensure the ongoing success of the projects. 

4- What is a typical investment structure per each project?

We provide flexibility on how we structure the investment and have identified 3 main structures as per investor’s interest:

1. Offtake Agreement on the carbon credits
2. Investment in a SPV at project - level
3. Investment on Group - level - Convertible green bonds
