Natural capital, an asset class that values nature
Nature underpins the economy. More than half of the world’s total gross domestic product, or $44 trillion, involves activities that are moderately or highly dependent on nature. Natural capital is an emerging asset class that values the natural world, an economic approach that makes it clear why a tree is worth more alive than dead.

High quality & diverse projects
In nature, diverse ecosystems are the most resilient. We believe diversity and resilience are important when it comes to investing too. That's why our projects are across diverse ecosystems.
We use propriety algorithms and technologies to identify high quality projects and forecast the natural capital returns.
Selected projects are then validated by human intelligence - experts on the ground. We are totally transparent with our findings and data, helping investors make an informed decision.
