Financing nature-based solutions
for climate and communities
in underserved markets
Nature-based solutions play a critical role in reducing carbon emissions and safeguarding the health of our planet.
While nature provides more than a third of the climate solutions we need to limit global warming to 1.5 C, it remains critically underfunded at only 2% of climate finance globally.
The voluntary carbon market presents a unique opportunity to channel private capital into nature-based solutions that not only have significant carbon benefits, but also support climate adaptation, biodiversity, and livelihoods of local and indigenous communities. Corporates are demanding high-quality, high-integrity carbon projects to help them meet ambitious climate commitments.
The Fund for Nature’s mission is to scale investment into nature-based solutions in emerging and frontier markets. We are designing a vehicle to provide up-front finance for nature-based carbon projects to meet the needs of global buyers while ensuring equitable outcomes and a level playing field for local communities and other stakeholders.
Our Investment Strategy
Nature-based solutions are infrastructure assets that need infrastructure-like financing to scale
We need radical transparency and trust-building for the market to scale with quality
We must build a fair carbon industry that benefits local communities and indigenous peoples as stewards of nature
The most outsize opportunities for investing in nature-based solutions lie in emerging and frontier markets, and this requires a strong local presence

We aggregate a portfolio of high-quality projects to achieve impact and capital deployment at scale
We provide corporates with access to a proprietary portfolio of high-quality nature-based carbon removal projects, and the ability to catalyze climate finance at scale
