Kaitiaki Consulting launches investment drive to fight climate change
Edinburgh and New Zealand-based onservation specialists Kaitiaki Consulting have launched a drive for investors to help in the fight against climate change.
Kaitiaki Consulting is releasing 20% of its share capital as it massively ramps up its drive for large scale land redevelopment and rewilding in Scotland. The £100,000 share release will see 200 shares released at £500 per share, and the company is seeking a number of large investors.
The firm has brought in a team of specialists in ecological restoration, forestry, ornithology, botany, soil science and a raft of other key sciences as part of its ambitious plans.
The company aims to be at the forefront of a ‘green recovery’ to the coronavirus pandemic in Scotland and is behind the Billion Trees Scotland reforestation campaign launched earlier this year.
In addition to the Scottish Government’s pledge to plant 36 million trees every year by 2030, the growth of new green industries and jobs will help transform rural communities. The drive to implement these changes is creating unparalleled opportunities for investors.
Kaitiaki Consulting matches environmental need – such as carbon reduction and offsetting – with funding partners. It then finds and develops habitats to plant trees and enhance biodiversity as part of a sustainable cycle.
Alex Foulkes, managing director of Kaitiaki Consulting, said: “This is a chance for investors to make a difference and join us in the fight to address the climate crisis and save the country’s incredible biodiversity. We will work with businesses, landowners, local authorities and other groups like ours to find a way to embrace the green new deal needed for the post-COVID-19 recovery, so we can all play an essential part in reducing carbon emissions.
“Organisations such as councils, businesses and others are committed to reaching net-zero, and we provide the strategy, expertise and on the ground management to make this happen. For landowners we offer a long-term stream of income generation and an opportunity to play a significant part in supporting the Scottish Government’s net-zero commitment over several decades.”
