Opportunity to develop your climate action project

Opportunity to develop your climate action project

Together we can protect nature, empower communities and tackle the climate crisis.

We are offering land-owners, community groups, conservation organisations, and other groups who would benefit from climate finance, an opportunity to develop their own projects.

As a truly global environmental company, South Pole is uniquely positioned to support you in adding a sustainable and supplementary source of income to fund your nature-based projects. To find out if your project, or initiative, is eligible for this unique opportunity, we invite you to read on.

Opportunity for Conservation and Restoration projects

South Pole believes Nature-based Solutions (NBS) need to be a central part of the post-COVID green recovery. We are looking to facilitate climate finance to forestry and land-use projects that protect wildlife, empower communities and create sustainable economies.

Opportunity for Conservation and Restoration projects

As your expert partner, South Pole will help channel climate finance and provide the technical know-how for you to measure, monitor and monetise the emission reductions achieved by your project. By developing carbon assets from your project you can earn an additional revenue stream to support your planet-saving activities.

To be considered projects must meet either of the following minimum requirements:

  • Ecosystem protection projects – minimum 10,000 ha of standing forest or larger than 5,000 hectares of carbon rich ecosystems, such as peat land or mangroves.
  • Restoration projects – must have the potential to restore at least 1,200 hectares

Why work with South Pole?

South Pole operates at the intersection of private sector investors and implementation partners, we are looking for projects that require upfront finance and expertise to generate certified emission reductions.

As a truly international carbon asset developer, with over 900 experts in 36 offices, we have the ability to close climate finance transactions around the world. Our diverse team efficiently structures, finances and helps implement NBS project development work.

What's in it for you?

In order to build and implement innovative solutions to address climate change, selected projects or partners will receive: support on financing options; high-level technical guidance; advisory covering the entire carbon development process.

Project delivery would be the full responsibility of the applicant, with South Pole guiding you from feasibility all the way through to issuing verified carbon credits and on-going monitoring.
We also provide the option of joining a community of practice, where South Pole and other relevant partners offer a mix of project specific support and general learning sessions, including basic training support to all successful applicants.
