ecosecurities is an impact-driven provider of environmental services with over two decades of experience in carbon markets and emissions reduction projects around the world. We provide technical and financial services to projects, companies, and organisations. With a rapidly-growing portfolio of projects, ecosecurities offers expertise and tailored services in sourcing, developing, and financing of climate mitigation projects. To support the net-zero transition we work with renewable energy projects, nature-based solutions (NBS) and community-based programs.
We believe in a world where
— human progress does not result in nature being exploited, but rather nurtured.
—financial gain is not mutually exclusive from social and environmental benefits.
That is why our mission is to connect finance and sustainability.
