DGB Group diversifies its project pipeline with plastic and biodiversity credits

DGB Group N.V. (“DGB” or “the Group”) (Euronext: DGB: NL0009169515), a leading carbon project developer and ecosystem restoration company, strategically diversifies its project pipeline, venturing into new domains with the inclusion of plastic and biodiversity credits through new projects and methodologies. This strategic diversification into new project types marks a pivotal step in its ongoing commitment to environmental innovation, sustainability, and diversified revenue streams.

Plastic credit project

DGB is at the forefront of developing a new plastic credit project, a significant initiative aimed at curbing plastic pollution and fostering environmental accountability. This programme, developed and managed by DGB, is focused on the cleanup and recycling of plastic. Every 1,000 kg of plastic cleaned up and recycled will create a plastic credit, making a substantial impact on reducing plastic waste in nature.

For this pilot phase, DGB has partnered with a local project implementation partner in Sri Lanka. DGB is looking to conclude the feasibility studies in the coming months and is aiming to start the project in Q3 2024. 

As the developer of this programme, DGB enables investors and companies to actively participate in lessening the global burden of plastic waste, thereby safeguarding marine life and preserving fragile ecosystems.

Biodiversity credit project

DGB is spearheading the development of a biodiversity credit project. This project is tailored to fund the conservation and restoration of biodiversity, with DGB actively managing the project to support the protection and restoration of crucial habitats, safeguard threatened species, and rehabilitate degraded ecosystems.

For this pilot phase, DGB has partnered with a local project implementation partner in Australia. DGB is looking to conclude the pilot phase and full feasibility studies in the coming months and is aiming to start the project in Q3 2024. 

By developing and offering biodiversity credits, DGB empowers investors and companies to contribute meaningfully to biodiversity enhancement, improving the livelihoods of local communities and investing in the ecological variety of our planet.

Diversified environmental solutions

These pilot projects mark DGB’s strategic diversification into new types of environmental credits, reaffirming its role as an innovator in the field of sustainable investments.

In 2023, the Group expanded its carbon credit (carbon unit) project pipeline to 60.1 million carbon credits under management, marking a substantial +58% year-over-year growth. The introduction of plastic and biodiversity credits complements DGB’s existing portfolio of carbon credits, further strengthening its position in the rapidly expanding market of environmental credits.

“Our expansion into plastic and biodiversity credits is more than just a strategic business decision; it’s a commitment to our planet and future generations,” said CEO Duijvestijn. “The launch of these pilots signifies DGB’s dedication to providing comprehensive solutions for environmental challenges. We are not just observing market trends; we are actively shaping a sustainable future.”

Partnering and purchasing biodiversity and plastic credits in advance at this early stage is possible for a select few partners and businesses; please contact our sales team at credits@green.earth for more information.
