Who we are

Earthbanc is a Climate Fintech Company on a mission to accelerate regenerative finance and drawdown carbon at scale to avoid runaway climate change. We have an official partnership with the UNCCD to restore 2.5B hectares of land by 2030.

“Restoring and protecting ecosystems is vital to the future of life on this planet and avoiding runaway climate change. Growing up on a farm during extensive droughts in Australia, I witnessed first hand the impact of land degradation for nature and the community. Since then, I am proud to have successfully led large-scale restoration projects, however funding was always a struggle. With Earthbanc, we have combined practical land restoration experience with extensive FinTech knowledge and pioneering technology to ensure climate action is easy, effective and profitable.”
