Invest in Nature

Wilder Carbon is a pilot initiative aimed at securing financial support for pathfinder projects implemented by Trusted Deliverers as a prelude to scaling up.

To enable this we are working with our partners at the Sumerian Foundation to create the first scalable UK Nature-based Solutions Facility as the financing vehicle for Wilder Carbon projects.

There are three ways you can invest

Invest across our portfolio of projects via our finance facility

The facility will support pathfinder projects across the UK.

Participation in the UK Nature based Solutions Facility will catalyse:

  • Carbon sequestration
  • Net biodiversity gain
  • Development of carbon & biodiversity standards
  • Job creation
  • Awareness
  • Community engagement

All participants will benefit from the direct attribution of sequestered carbon and biodiversity net gain.

Invest in specific projects with trusted deliverers  

We recognise that individual companies may want to finance specific local projects.

You can do this on an Environmental Social and Governance, Corporate Social Responsibility or risk-related basis now; and if you are a company working on your carbon reduction strategy you can also express formal interest in receiving future Wilder Carbon credits.

Register your interest in Future Wilder Carbon Credits

We anticipate being able to issue Estimated Issuance Units within the next 12 months and that these will then become verified Wilder Carbon credits courtesy of the MRV mechanisms that the Wilder Carbon Standards will develop in 2021.
