DGB Group N.V. (“DGB”, “DutchGreen” or “the Group”) (AEX:DGB | NL0009169515), a leading carbon offsetting and ecosystem restoration company, is pleased to announce the addition of Blijenberg as the newest substantial shareholder in the business having acquired a 4.85% equity stake in DGB.
The Board of Directors of the Group welcomes the new shareholder to its investor base and is delighted to see the Bleijenberg family sharing DGB's mission and observing the long-term perspective of its business model.
¨We see a great opportunity for nature conservation, ecosystem restoration, and afforestation to be included in net-zero targets via carbon credits. We are very much behind the purpose of DGB to plant trees and restore ecosystems worldwide, but would not have invested if its cause was only philanthropic. The nature conservation sector, environment and biodiversity is a multi-billion euro market and the sector has just completed its seventh year of consecutive growth. Carbon credits are a new commodity and the price is showing a rising trend. Just as other investors all over the world, we are only just becoming more and more aware of the potential of nature-based solutions, such as reforestation and ecological restoration to reduce CO2 emissions. DGB is therefore the ideal investment for us as it is the combination of a great purpose and a commercial business with the potential of becoming a market leader in this industry.¨, said F. Bleijenberg to DGB.
