Nature-based Solutions protect, sustainably manage, and restore natural and modified ecosystems, addressing social challenges and benefiting both people and nature. These solutions make the most effective tool in the fight against climate change, biodiversity loss, and social inequality, and it is important to support them.

This is what goodcarbon, a Berlin-based startup does. It provides a platform for companies seeking to establish and manage trustworthy, long-term carbon credit portfolios from Nature-based Solution assets. 

In a recent development, goodcarbon bagged €5.25 million in funding led by Ocean 14 Capital, alongside participation from Silverstrand Capital, high-profile angel investors, and existing investors Planet A Ventures, 468 Capital (recently backed UserHub), and Greenfield Capital.

This funding will support the market launch of high-quality Nature-based Solutions, assisting companies in achieving their long-term climate neutrality and net zero goals.

Helps companies achieve net-zero goals

Founded by Jérôme Cochet and David Diallo in 2021, goodcarbon offers a digital platform enabling businesses to build and manage long-term portfolios of CO2 certificates from trusted Nature-based Solutions. The startup collaborates closely with highly effective environmental initiatives to develop exclusive projects. It relies on a scientifically grounded quality approach that has convinced prominent companies like Deutsche Telekom, Bertelsmann, and Melitta.

Its digital investment and trading platform empowers conscious companies to conserve and restore nature by funding high-impact, verified Nature-based Solution projects in return for high-quality carbon credits. It aims to be integral to corporations’ carbon offsetting plans in Germany. Its platform connects companies directly to project owners to achieve that goal.

“The funding round marks a pivotal moment for goodcarbon and our mission to provide companies with access to high-quality Nature-based Solutions assets, empowering them to realise their emissions reduction strategies while protecting our planet.,” said Jérôme Cochet, Founder and CEO of goodcarbon. “With the Ocean 14 Capital fund and Silverstrand Capital on board, we are strengthening our global network and expertise in Nature-based Solutions and have experienced new partners on our side to expand our goodcarbon Originals projects.” 

“We are thrilled to be part of goodcarbon’s journey, supporting their mission to provide companies with access to nature-based solutions,” said George Duffield from Ocean 14 Capital. “We are particularly impressed with their science-based quality approach as well as the product-market fit.”
