Description

Innovative pilot fund for forest based carbon and other environmentally certified credits, aiming to protect the environment and reduce carbon emissions through sustainable land use and conservation of primary forest.

Objectives

The Althelia Climate Fund (the "Fund") is a path breaking proposal to enhance the environment and reduce carbon emissions through support for sustainable land use and conservation of primary forest. European based, the Fund is global, focusing on Africa and Latin America, and secondarily in Asia. With a target of EUR 150m of commitments from private and public investors the Fund will invest in some 20 projects to source forest based carbon and other environmentally certified credits for sale to the voluntary offset market. An amount of voluntary forest carbon credits corresponding to EIB's investment will be sold by the Fund to (public or private or philanthropic) entities that will permanently retire them.
