AboutRevalue exists to deliver a fundamental step-change in integrity at scale. We are rethinking carbon projects from the ground up. We believe this fundamental step-change in the quality of carbon projects is required to build confidence in the market. 'Slightly better' is not good enough. Confidence is required for the carbon market to go from a pond to an ocean. An ocean of demand is required for impact at a planetary scale. Our world cannot afford anything less than impact on the planetary scale. This drives us every day.Revalue Nature has raised $10 million in Series A funding to rethink carbon project development from the ground up! This new investment was co-led by Ecosystem Integrity Fund (EIF) and SJF Ventures, two leading venture firms focused on climate and impact. Join us on our journey to supercharge the world's leading nature-based developers, reset the bar for quality in the carbon market, and protect and regenerate nature at a scale that makes our eyes water. What We DoRevalue supercharges the world's leading nature-based developers. We enable them to go from the initial rapid assessment to first credit issuance, and beyond. All supported by our climate tech, which creates a step-change in accuracy, speed, automation, and level of insights during the project assessment and development process.
