Green Finance as a Solution to Climate Instability
Earthbanc provides a sustainable finance and carbon marketplace API (application programming interface) to create a regenerative economy that scales up sustainable livelihoods through restoring the planet’s critical ecosystems, and provides a solid return on investment to investors and payments to communities regenerating the planet. Tom Duncan uses the example of mangrove restoration and beekeeping as an important way to understand the goal of their green banking services. Mangroves sequester carbon at 5-fold the rate of terrestrial trees, they provide habitat to support rich biodiversity. They protect coastal communities from storm surges and other extreme weather events. Earthbanc’s carbon offsets enables businesses, individuals and the financial system to integrate carbon offsetting into their lives and businesses so that every transaction can be offset to reduce our collective impact, and help communities on the front line of climate change.
Earthbanc recently won the Mastercard Lighthouse FINITIV program as the best fintech in the Nordics and Baltics in the program for its digital sustainable bonds issuance, ESG reporting, with satellite AI carbon monitoring and reporting for the world’s first continuously audited offsets API. Earthbanc has been listed by the International Union of Conservation (IUCN) in their Global Congress as the key stakeholder to operationalize the ‘Mangrove Moonshot’ of 20 billion trees.
