What if we could create impact that lasts?
What is our mission?
At equio, we believe that the global scaling of new carbon projects provides a historic opportunity to create lasting impact on people, planet and prosperity.
For that purpose, equio provides two innovations:
A transparent, global marketplace for project developers to present investment opportunites
New financing solutions for investors to faciliate direct investments into the development of new climate impact projects
Who are we?
Following our purpose.
One team, sharing one common goal: Create impact in what they do.
We believe climate change is one of the key challenges of our lifetime. However, the necessary transformation also provides enormous economic and social potential. With the goal to offer meaningful climate solutions, which combine economic and environmental targets, we founded equio.
With each new project development, equio plays an active role in supporting the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). To achieve the global SDG's, annual investments of roughly 3,900 billion USD are needed. Current annual investments average out at around 1,400 billion USD. Every investment on the equio platform, actively supports closing the yearly gap of around 2,500 billion USD.
For local communities, the conesequent focus on SDG's as co-benefits of each project development, results in crucial benefits such as better living conditions, proper education or health benefits.

Achieve carbon neutrality.
As core motivation, all project developments possess a direct, positive impact on our climate. Either through the active avoidance of emissions, or reduction through CO2 sequestation. With our offering, next to the establishment of new technical and social projects, we strive to close the annual gap of 300-400 billion USD for preserving and restoring ecosystems.

Activate global resources.
To achieve our global climate targets, we need to close the current financing gaps.
We believe, that through the activation of the private sector a transition to a zero-carbon resilient economy is possible!
