Nature For Justice

We mobilize Nature-based Solutions for climate justice

Nature For Justice  mobilizes resources that communities need to restore their natural ecosystems, build climate resilience, and promote sustainable livelihoods. 

What we do

Nature For Justice works with trusted local partners and investors to identify and co-create carbon projects that center nature-based solutions and social justice.

Carbon markets are one, but not the only channel we use to mobilize  long-term finance for community-led conservation and Nature-based Solutions (NbS), to benefit people and place.

Carbon project origination

We collaborate with local partners to identify  high-integrity carbon projects that can drive investment  for communities impacted by climate change.

Carbon project co-creation

We optimize results and de-risk implementation by leveraging the knowledge of trusted local partners and engaging all partners in a collaborative co-creation process.

Climate justice assurance

We provide assurance that local communities receive an equitable share of the proceeds from carbon credits and that our projects contribute to the goals and well-being of our community partners.

Climate resilience

We strengthen the capacity of local partners to scale and sustain thriving ecosystems by providing targeted training, technical assistance and financial support.

What we believe

The planet and people can't wait

From floods and droughts to heat waves and wildfires, rising seas, and species extinctions – climate change has left no region on Earth untouched.

The climate crisis disrupting livelihoods, supply chains, food security, and the health and welfare of over a billion people, particularly those living in frontline communities.

The power of nature

Healthy forests, agricultural lands, and open fields possess a remarkable capacity to sequester substantial quantities of greenhouse gases. Scientific experts estimate that Nature-based Solutions can meet up to 37 percent of the Paris Agreement goal of keeping the global temperature rise below 1.5 degrees C.

What makes us different

Nature For Justice was founded to address three urgent needs:

To help frontline communities adapt to climate change by accessing the resources they need to achieve resilience.

To assist small organizations that have existing trust networks access the resources they need for climate justice and resiliency.

To sequester massive amounts of carbon to contribute to achieving the Paris climate goal.

Nature For Justice is addressing these needs.

We provide the communities hardest hit by climate change with the means and know-how to build and sustain their resiliency against the devastating impact that climate change is having on their lives and livelihoods. We create value for investors. And, at scale, our projects will sequester millions of tons of carbon, protect biodiversity, and improve livelihoods.

Spotlight on programs

Nature For Justice improves conservation and land management practices, restores landscapes, and protects natural habitats while building local economies.  We’re actively working in 13 countries in the Americas, Africa, and Asia.

Africa NbS carbon program

Working with South African farmers and local populations through the Gouritz Cluster Biosphere Reserve to restore landscapes using the carbon-rich Spekboom plant.

Indigenous-led conservation in Canada

A First Nation with lands in the oil sands region, N4J and our partners Ostrom Climate and Ducks Unlimited Canada are evaluating the opportunity for a larger-scale restoration project.

Global carbon project origination activities

In India, Papua New Guinea, and throughout Latin America, N4J is identifying partners with existing trust networks and seeking funds to launch NbS projects.

Trusted by investors. Trusted by communities.

Our team has decades of experience spanning 70+ countries, with diverse backgrounds in finance, environmental science, conservation, natural resource management, economic development, social inclusion, communications, and technology. We excel at leading large, multinational organizations and professional teams.

At Nature For Justice, we maintain enduring collaborations with global partners and local project implementers on whom the long-term success of all projects will depend.
