How we can help with

developing a project.

With 15-years’ experience as a project developer, we have a dedicated Nature-Based Solutions team that can advise and assist you. We ensure the projects we develop adhere to the best international standards, enabling the delivery of robust, third-party certified carbon credits that not only avoid, reduce or remove carbon emissions but also impact positively communities and biodiversity.

Developing and implementing a project

We support project developers and clients in all stages of project certification, from the design to the implementation of the project, as well as seeking the necessary funding. Our specialist team of experts work alongside an international network of partners and colleagues with local knowledge on the ground to enable deployment of projects around the world and ensure their long-term efficient management.

Finding a solution for you

If you are looking to develop or support the development of a project to create impact and manage your supply-chains, and/or build a portfolio of projects, we can advise on a strategy and find solutions to meeting your objectives and needs.

All our projects can add value by enabling our customers to improve sustainability disclosures, demonstrate pro activity on environment, social and governance issues, contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals, offset emissions and even help to achieve carbon neutrality or carbon positivity when in conjunction with ambitious emissions reduction programmes.

Our portfolio

of projects in development

EcoAct has a growing portfolio of projects, with more than 50 projects at various levels of maturity. Overall, the type of projects we are, and will develop, range from the first ever blue carbon projects in threatened coastal areas to forest restoration in highly degraded land and finally to projects aiming to improve access to energy renewable, energy-efficient cooking alternatives and clean water.

As a future-driven, innovative project developer, EcoAct is also researching into new solutions to reduce and remove carbon emissions, supporting the development of methodologies that can certify these achievements and conducting pilot studies on the ground. In 2021, EcoAct partnered with Interxion: A Digital Realty Company, Schneider Electric France and the Calanques National Park to launch the “Prométhée – Med” research project aiming to establish the first methodology for certifying conservation and preservation measures for seagrass beds as part of the Low Carbon Label. We are also running a similar pilot for a Mangroves restoration methodology for the Label Bas Carbone, this time in Martinique and Guadeloupe. More recently, EcoAct engaged in the preparation of several pilot studies in Kenya to assess the effectiveness of biochar with our long-time partner, Climate Pal.

Nature-Based Solutions

EcoAct is working on various restoration and reforestation projects in some of the countries with the largest blue carbon wealth, such as Indonesia, Mexico, India and Kenya.

Particularly, we are focusing on mangrove restoration, as they are powerful carbon sinks. To date, EcoAct has identified and developing projects that aim to restore 10,000 hectares of mangrove ecosystems.

Forest landscape restoration and reforestation projects are vital to restore biodiversity and ecosystem services as well as to foster sustainable livelihoods.

EcoAct is developing forest landscape restoration projects in Africa, including an ambitious plan to plant around 6 million trees in Mount Kenya to reforest degraded areas while enhancing agroforestry practices with local farmers.

The aim of REDD+ projects is to guarantee the long-term conservation of existing forests by reducing the causes of degradation and deforestation, for example by ensuring forest resources are used in a sustainable way.

EcoAct is exploring this climate solution in the Comoro Islands and conducting a preliminary  feasibility study of a project that aims to protect 250,000 hectares of delta ecosystem in Kenya.

Clean Water

Over two billion people live in countries facing clean water scarcity1. EcoAct is working to bring safe water to the communities that need it most through the construction and distribution of water treatment technologies.

For example, EcoAct will implement boreholes in areas where we also plan to distribute improved cookstoves. We are also supporting the expansion and certification of a project that is constructing solar-powered water kiosks in rural areas of Cambodia.

Energy efficiency and fuel switching

EcoAct has extensive, award-winning experience in the development of cookstove projects in Africa. These learnings have helped us to replicate and develop similar projects across the continent and in countries such as India, as well as support the investment of one in Nepal.

Improved cookstoves intend to replace traditional methods of cooking which depend on large quantities of native firewood to function. The alternatives proposed by EcoAct and our local partners are more efficient and therefore use smaller quantities of biomass, reducing pressure on forest resources. Additionally, clean cookstoves reduce indoor household pollution and cooking time, improving the quality of life of its users.

Together with our partners, we are raising the funds to develop fuel switching and energy efficiency projects across Africa. Amongst others, we are developing biogas projects that will provide households with biodigesters and others that will promote the use of LED bulbs to reduce energy consumption.

Renewable energy

Climate finance is helping develop renewable projects that will decrease the reliance on fossil fuels and alleviate energy poverty by providing clean energy sources to rural communities around the world.

EcoAct is looking into investing in renewable energy solutions, such as wind farms, and is already exploring several proposals to implement solar energy in India.

Our growing team

of experts

Our growing Nature-based Solutions team reflects our ambition in project development, currently comprised of 30 members from 8 nationalities and ranging from project development experts to consultants in charge of marketing carbon credits and promoting our projects.

Our members work in various locations around the world, including those where we are focusing our development efforts. Our strong multidisciplinary and multilingual team is allowing us to expand the geographical and technical scope of our expertise in the development and sale of nature-based and technology-based solutions.
