Cultivo, a new way to invest in nature at scale, launches its ‘Triple Crisis Action Plan’, a new plan to tackle the worsening triple planetary crisis of global warming, biodiversity loss, and water stress. Based on primary research with financial institutions, corporations and foundations, Cultivo’s 5 Step Action Plan help unlock private finance into nature.
Offer nature as an attractive asset for investment: Cultivo’s new plan packages nature-based solutions into investment products, showing the financial, social and environmental returns
Use technology to reduce transaction costs and create market efficiencies: Cultivo’s new plan will leverage proprietary algorithms and remote sensor technologies to reduce the transactions costs involved in identifying high quality nature based solutions. Cultivo uses an in house Search & Origination team to do the ‘heavy lifting’ to identify the best assets to invest in. The Cultivo Technology Hub uses its own tools and 3rd party tools to provide digital MRV (monitoring, verification and reporting) to monitor the vital signs of a project and reduce monitoring costs
Cultivo’s new plan takes a more holistic approach. Cultivo assesses the ‘Natural Capital Density’ for every project, which means every layer of the services that nature provides. The Cultivo Technology Hub has tools that allow analysis of the impacts of water stress, biodiversity loss, and climate change.
Measure the right attributes, and choose the right standards. The new action plan will also ensure each project has environmental and social safeguards built in.
Cultivo’s approach ensures all data for nature-based projects is transparent to all stakeholders from beginning to end.
