About

We do this by rethinking projects from the ground up - slightly better is not good enough - in order to build confidence in the market and deliver impact at a planetary scale. Our world cannot afford anything less. This mission drives us every day.

Revalue Nature has raised $10 million in Series A funding to be the most innovative and trusted developer for nature on the planet. This new investment was co-led by Ecosystem Integrity Fund (EIF) and SJF Ventures, two leading venture firms focused on climate and impact. Join us on our journey to supercharge the world's leading nature-based developers, reset the bar for quality in the carbon market, and protect and regenerate nature at a scale that makes our eyes water.

What We Do

Revalue supercharges the world's leading nature-based carbon projects developers. We provide them with the required technical support and competitive financing to go from the initial rapid assessment of potential project areas, to the first carbon credits issuance, and beyond. This is underpinned by our proprietary tech, which creates a step-change in accuracy, speed, automation, and level of insights.

Our team

Our global, diverse team sits across all time zones and has an exceptional track-record of designing and delivering high impact carbon projects globally. We have built long-term partnerships and are working in iconic landscapes with leading players in the nature conservation and restoration space. We offer great opportunities for our talent and we want this to be a place that allows you to do the best work of your life, while also focusing on balance outside of work.
