Sustainable plants planted in the earth

Who we are

Treevive is an impact-driven company that aims to conserve, restore, and sustainably manage two million hectares of tropical forest landscapes by 2030. We close the gap between tropical forest landscape projects in need of financial solutions and investors that seek high-quality, bankable projects for their biodiversity and carbon commitments.

We support project owners with funding and technical assistance to accelerate the development of the carbon asset of their project. We market the results of these projects – including its biodiversity and local community’s benefits – by offering companies that want to offset their unavoidable CO2 emissions high quality forest carbon credits.

Treevive acts as a revolving structure; the generated profits flow forward to fund new forest projects.

Treevive is a sister organization of Form International, which has 30 years of expertise in sustainable forest management, (carbon) certification, forestry investments and the development of forest landscape projects in tropical regions in Africa, Latin America and Asia. Form International delivers a range of related consulting services to clients worldwide.

Treevive’s core team is complemented by a broad and diverse pool of Form International experts, in-country experts and international partners.

Our mission

We contribute to the acceleration of private sector climate finance for the long-term conservation, restoration and sustainable management of tropical forest landscapes that deliver multiple social and environmental impacts.

To do so we bring together seed capital and skills to transform ideas into investment-ready tropical forest landscape projects. These projects have access to investment capital and the international market for carbon credits.

How we work

Treevive bridges the gap between projects in need of finance to restore and preserve tropical forest landscapes, and businesses and investors who are seeking to fund these kinds of projects. We offer projects pre-financed technical assistance for project development, and buyers and investors a unique opportunity for early phase engagement in these carbon asset creations.

We focus on (1) new project development; (2) carbon asset development of existing projects; and (3) market access for already developed carbon projects.

Building on the founding organization and partners’ networks with a proved track-record in developing tropical forest assets, Treevive is unique in facilitating long-term sustainable relationships and tailor-made matches.

Quality guaranteed

Treevive applies strict quality requirements and standards for all projects, buyers and investors to ensure strong community and biodiversity benefits, in compliance with international certification standards and ESG requirements. We require buyers of the carbon credits to use offsetting in addition to their robust and transparently disclosed emissions reduction efforts, in line with international climate science.

Why join Treevive

Carbon footprint in forest

Our own carbon footprint

Like others in our industry, we sometimes travel internationally for project visits, meetings and other events. In doing so, we are contributing to air travel emissions. We reduce the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions of our travel as much as possible:

  • We limit international travel to essential trips only. We give priority to tele- or videoconferencing and rely on local partners wherever possible;
  • We travel by train or share a car when a trip is under 8 hours;
  • When air travel cannot be avoided, we compensate GHG emissions by purchasing quality carbon credits from our projects.

Besides compensating air travel, we also compensate all other travels and the carbon footprint of our office through Treevive carbon forest projects. For the purchase of office materials and other goods we maintain sustainable procurement policies.
