Investing in Natural Climate Solutions
Colibri is a catalytic capital facility designed to unlock the land use sector’s potential to achieve 37% of the global emissions reductions needed by 2030.
Private finance has a vital role to play to enable natural climate solutions to play their essential role in supporting the Paris Agreement and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. But today, mainstream investment in Natural Capital remains largely untapped— worse still, mainstream investment continues to underwrite unsustainable and destructive industrial land-use models.
We are facing a triple environmental crisis: quick and dangerous degradation of our atmosphere, soils, and biodiversity which in turn are exacerbating food insecurity, poverty and conflicts
We need to reduce emissions by 45% by 2030.
24 billion tonnes of fertile soil are being lost per year, largely due to unsustainable agriculture practices. If this trend continues, 95% of the Earth’s land areas could become degraded by 2050.
Biodiversity loss is driving a mass extinction of species and compromising Earth’s ecological infrastructure and its capacity to meet human needs.
