Natural Capital Solutions For A Low Carbon Economy

Syngenera supports corporate sustainability action across three themes: decarbonization, circular economy, and inclusive business practices. We do this through identifying and managing large-scale natural capital concessions (~10,000 ha +), such that corporate strategic partners can invest directly for the purposes of forestry carbon credits (avoided deforestation, reforestation), sustainable agroforestry production, and the creation as well as support of community-centric non-timber forest enterprise (NTFE). Syngenera is initially focused on Indonesia and has incorporated a team of professionals with decades of in-country forestry management experience.

Since our inception in 2016, we have accomplished the following:

1) Completion of a database assessing over 3,000 potential forestry projects throughout the country

2) Identification of priority concessions available for our ‘Phase One’ of investment that meet our core criteria:

• Maximization of carbon sequestration and carbon offset potential
• Creation of meaningful work and economic opportunities for local communities through sustainable agroforestry and NTFE
• Positive conservation and biodiversity impacts

3) Continued development of a database that quantifies project interventions as ‘SDG outcomes’ that can be delivered to investors alongside traditional financial returns and carbon offset off-take Agreements.

4) Agreements with a number of corporate strategic partners and development finance institutions for technical assistance and potential financing
