Conservation and restoration of forests are critical climate solutions, however, there can be significant risks in investing in stand-alone forestry carbon projects. The current prices for forestry carbon offsets are too low and uncertain in order to attract private sector investment, and must compete with palm oil or other financially attractive monoculture commodities. The resulting negative externalities (e.g. biodiversity loss, land degradation, etc.) are not quantified in the investment evaluation.
Natural capital concessions that integrate carbon emissions reduction, biomass and other social and environmental capital require complex analysis. These natural assets provide numerous benefits e.g. soil enrichment, biodiversity protection, employment gains, food and water security, climate adaptation and other ecosystem services. However, most project developers are unable to quantify the value of low-carbon and ecosystem services which may impact investment decisions.
Syngenera is an enterprise committed to raising the standard of living by promoting entrepreneurship within a commercial, value-added framework. We develop natural capital assets using proven sustainable forest conservation & reforestation methods that monetize tropical, bio-diverse regions that are threatened by deforestation. Syngenera has identified a significant “land bank” of eligible natural capital assets that can provide benchmark financial returns in addition to generating substantial natural and social value.
Our mission is to :
The carbon sequestration is based on the 1) avoided deforestation, 2) reforestation, and production of bioenergy to offset fossil fuel. The figure provided are an estimate based on assumptions about the area of conservation, area of sustainable biomass and bio energy production.
