What biodiversity projects do you support?
Our Radical Farming Fund aims to support projects that improve our collective futures.
Each project is carefully chosen to address both social and environmental dimensions, and is signed off by a panel of climate crisis experts. The current projects we have invested in focus on fixing some of the adverse impact of the fashion & agriculture industries.
We have currently invested in 2 projects that are REDD+ certified, through our biodiversity partners, Natural Capital Partners: The first project is The Meru and Nanyuki community regeneration project based in the foothills of Mount Kenya. The second, is a reforestation project in the Acre Amazonian Rainforest in Brazil.
Through these projects, we have been able to mitigate almost 5 millions kg of CO2 since our launch in November 2019. And between them, these two projects directly address 15 out of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals including: No Poverty, Zero Hunger, Gender Equality, Good Health & Wellbeing, and Reduced Inequalities.
We also work with our carefully selected farms on critical on-farm activities to protect the local carefully balanced biodiversity. For example Lake Hawea Station has several biodiversity projects including the Western Grand Skink Lizard protection (the last population in the wild), the Clutha Flathead Galaxias protection (second rarest fish in NZ) and protecting some nesting habitat for the Native Falcon (estimated 3000 breeding pairs left or a rare Cypress Hebe (one of only two stands left in the wild).Visit our Radical Farming fund page here to find out more.
