A novelty - A share class as a bridge to a sustainable project
Invest today for our tomorrow
By linking a share class with a specific and sustainable climate project, we enable our investors to take an innovative approach to decarbonize their investment portfolio. By involving young people, we additionally intend to influence the climate behaviour of the next generation positively.
There-for-Trees organizes, coordinates, and finances the regional tree cell projects together with the forestry department of the municipality and the school classes. Since There-for-Trees operates as a non-profit and is supported by broad patronage, allows it you to have some 90% of the obtained funds to flow directly into the projects.
With your active decision for our sustainable climate solution «COmpensate2gether» you will, already today, support the long-term goals of the Paris Climate Agreement to reduce global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius.
With the completion of a tree cell project, the forestry department takes over the long-term management of the forest plot and safeguarding, while CrowtherLab monitoring the project over the long term through their Restor platform developed with Google.
Based on portfolio data and the latest scientific findings of the research institute CrowtherLab of the ETH, DIVAS Asset Management calculates the amount of CO2 to be offset. According to current findings, compensation costs are 0.20% p.a. and distributed quarterly to the non-profit organization There-for-Trees.
If there is not enough tree planting capacity, Switzerland's peatland protection projects are promoted as an alternative. Peatlands are extremely effective carbon reservoirs and are ideally suited for CO2 compensation.
Based on our collaborative principle and our partners, we focus on regional reforestation projects in Switzerland with the community and school classes' involvement. With these common goals, school classes in Switzerland will develop their own tree cell projects and, through knowledge transfer and awareness-raising and implement them locally in their region, under the regional forestry department's guidance.
With this unique and collaborative implementation at different levels, we offset the CO2 footprint of your investment and our own corporate emissions annually.
