We are dedicated to fight climate change whist generating alpha for investors. Our investments in natural capital reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve biodiversity.
2019 was the second warmest year on record and the end of the warmest decade ever recorded. Our investments align with the UN Sustainable development goal of “Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts”. We measure the number of tonnes of C02 sequestered which is a key metric. This is independently audited and we generate one Australian Carbon Credit Unit (ACCU) for each tonne of C02 sequestered in natural vegetation. These units are issued by the Australian government through the Clean Energy Regulator.
Investors are able to quantify direction reductions in C02 emissions and carbon sequestration that are generated through the investments in natural regeneration of landscapes. The SDG is Goal 13 – Climate Action with investor returns and capital growth generated from the sale of carbon offsets.
The two main methods for carbon investment are:
- Improving Natural Capital by Storing Carbon in Biomass
- Reducing Emissions and Storing Carbon through Savanna Burning
These are discussed in more detail in our Investment Projects section.
