5 November 2021 – Glasgow, UK – Greensphere Capital unveiled its nature-based climate solutions investment strategy today at COP26. Speaking at the launch of the Get Nature Positive campaign, Managing Partner Divya Seshamani said: “We see our early move into this space as continuing Greensphere’s path breaking strategic focus. Investing in nature-based climate solutions marries Greensphere’s deep expertise in renewable energy, organic waste management, agriculture and silviculture with our passion for science-based solutions.”
Under Nature-Based Climate Solutions, Greensphere has two strategies. The first is an early stage investment fund and incubator – GAIA Sciences Innovation – that will invest in early stage companies in biodiversity, botanical and fungal science, forestry, agriculture, food and habitat restoration in partnership with some of the leading research institutes in the world. The second strategy (Natural Capital Projects), which Greensphere has already been working on projects within since 2019, works with major institutional investors to invest in large-scale sustainable agriculture, forestry, habitat restoration and sustainable land scheme projects.
