project development

Are you interested in supporting the projects we develop? EcoAct will help you find the best solution for your net-zero journey.

The steady increase in the demand for carbon credits is driving a rise in costs and shortening supply of accredited projects. EcoAct is tackling this shortage through the development of high-quality offsetting projects and supporting local partners with indirect investment around the world. Climate finance is vital in making these projects possible and we offer clients the opportunity to support project development through different approaches, from upfront investment to securing credits for future issuances. Our team of experts can help you choose the most suitable project/s for your net-zero journey from our growing portfolio.

Financing solutions

for project development

If you are interested in supporting the projects developed by EcoAct and our social partners, there are three main ways in which you can do this: through upfront investment, offtake agreements or spot buying. Our team can assist you in exploring the different options and finding the right choice for your offsetting strategy.

Upfront investment

Through this approach, your company opts for bearing the costs of financing the development, certification and operation of an offsetting project in exchange for securing a long-term supply of credits.

Offtake agreements

In this case, an offtake agreement refers to an agreement between EcoAct and our client in which the buyer decides to purchase a set volume or percentage of the credits that will be generated through the project.

Spot buying

Clients not willing to bear the costs of initial investment or compromising to purchase credits that have not been issued yet might prefer to buy them once they are generated and available on the market.

Ways in which you can

invest in project development

The steady increase in demand for carbon credits, owing to a growing climate awareness, is shortening supply of available volumes and, consequently, causing prices to rise. Demand is projected to continue to increase as more companies commit to net-zero targets. This is encouraging the development of new offsetting projects and more leading organisations are opting to support projects in the early stages as a component of their offset strategies.

To this end, EcoAct is not only putting its technical expertise in project development at the service of developers but also facilitating the access and mobilisation of climate finance to enable best-in-class projects to come to fruition. In this sense, EcoAct is investing in project development by financing and seeking co-investors willing to support the development of new, verified offset projects.

Investing in project development today can help in securing credit availability and managing price risk for your net-zero commitment. It also provides myriad opportunities for staff and customer engagement, as well as setting organisations apart from their competitors. Carbon credits generated by a newly developed project can be used for an organisation’s own offset requirements or can be sold to other organisation to help them to reach their own commitments.

Secure availability

Investing in a project secures the availability of credits in the future and reduce risks such as the short supply the market is experiencing today.

Lower credit price

Since the investor bears upfront costs and risk for project development, the average price per credit is offered lower as an incentive. Carbon credits that have already been issued are more expensive as the project developer has had to cover the initial costs of the developing the project.

Project investment opportunities

Sales opportunities

Due to market dynamics, investing in project development today will give carbon credit holders the opportunity to resell any excess once issued.

Sense of ownership

Financing the development of an offsetting project gives investors the opportunity to be involved in the process and gain first-hand experience in offsetting solutions and the voluntary market.
