Holistic solutions for nature, climate and people

Synchronicity Earth’s More than Carbon initiative is designed to provide companies with exciting opportunities to make a positive impact for nature and climate, while also providing benefits for local communities in some of the most nature-rich environments on Earth.

Our More than Carbon initiative

The goal of More than Carbon is to provide a mechanism through which businesses can support the most effective action to protect and restore nature and mitigate the impacts of climate change in some of the world’s most biodiverse – but also most threatened – regions. The initiative places equal emphasis on nature, climate and people, supporting work to protect biodiversity, reduce the impacts of climate change and contribute to human security, health and wellbeing.

Contributing funding to our More than Carbon initiative helps businesses to balance their impact on the natural world, both in terms of their carbon emissions and their impact on nature, thereby contributing towards meeting environmental and social responsibilities.

Why More than Carbon?

Evidence of the impact the connected ecological crises of climate change and biodiversity loss are having on our lives (global pandemics, wildfires, floods, record temperatures etc.) is all around us. In response to these crises, many businesses are taking steps to better understand and mitigate the impact of their own activities – both in terms of carbon emissions and more broadly on the natural world.

In the finance sector, the development of mechanisms such as the Task Force for Climate-related Financial Disclosures (and the emerging Task Force on Nature-related Financial Disclosures) along with changing attitudes, particularly among younger generations, is, for many, a wake-up call: the need to understand and – more importantly – take action to address the existential risks associated with climate change and biodiversity loss is clear; for business reasons but also simply because it is the right thing to do.

of all historical cumulative CO2 emissions since 1850 occurred between 2010 and 2019.
of annual emissions are from agriculture, forestry, and other land use, and around half of these are from deforestation.
fall in monitored populations of mammals, birds, amphibians, reptiles, and fish between 1970 and 2016.
