VanDyson Investments (Vandyson) is pleased to announce that we have helped found and have made multiple investments into Verity Nature Pty Ltd (“Verity”).
Verity’s objective is to build a portfolio of blue, teal and green ecosystem restoration projects that generate carbon credits at scale across a range of jurisdictions.
The Company’s projects are focused on helping to restore large-scale nature-based solutions like blue carbon ecosystems (mangrove forests, tidal marsh and sea grass beds), teal carbon ecosystems (non-tidal freshwater wetlands) and green carbon ecosystems (terrestrial ecosystems like savannah forests).
Verity has developed an attractive business model that is supported by a strong pipeline of large restoration areas for carbon projects.
Verity aims to be a leader in the development and financing of carbon projects. This successful implementation of this goal positions Verity as a true ESG impact investment, achieving numerous UN SDGs, including carbon sequestration benefits, cultural core benefits and multiple environmental & social economic co-benefits.
VanDyson invests in companies that have exposure to attractive, high growth markets, a strong market position with high barriers to entry and an attractive business model with contracted offtake.
VanDyson targets investments with the dual objective of generating a profitable financial return and positive ESG-related impacts. Verity meets both these objectives. VanDyson has taken an active ownership position and Duncan van der Merwe has joined the board of Verity as Chair and CEO.
