A unique opportunity for your nature-based climate action project

Since 2008, South Pole has worked with hundreds of land-owners, community groups, investors, conservation organisations and others to identify and facilitate emission reduction projects worldwide.

As a truly global environmental company, with over 350 experts in 18 offices, South Pole is uniquely positioned to direct climate finance to impactful climate mitigation and adaptation activities. To date, we have channeled funding into developing almost 150 nature-based carbon projects in 40 countries.

We are open to projects at different stages of development and will consider all proposals that meet our criteria. Please see an outline of the opportunities and minimum requirements below:
