carbon removal projects
in healthy Swedish forests.
Eken pays forest owners to profitably transition towards a forestry with higher commercial, social and biological values.
Give me a call to discuss your forest.
We give Science Based Target initiative (SBTi) companies the opportunity to invest in certified carbon removal projects in Swedish forests.
Let's discuss a solution tailored to your company's long-term needs.
EKEN Financing Value Added Forestry AB (Eken) was founded in 2020 at the intersection of the forest industry, forestry, finance, and climate science. The business idea emerged from the realization that corporate investments in carbon credits could potentially finance a long-term renewal of Swedish forestry. Through Eken’s market-based solution, SBTi companies are now offered the opportunity to invest in certified Swedish carbon credits with immediate climate impact, where the revenues are used to compensate forest owners for delaying harvesting and improving forestry practices.
Science and technology enable the next generation forestry.
Axfood, a leading group in the Swedish grocery retail sector, has entered into an agreement with Eken regarding 32,000 CO2e stored through extended rotation age of at least 10 years in Swedish forests. The agreement is a continuation of the collaboration on climate compensation that began in 2022.
– We are delighted to once again have earned the trust to provide Axfood with climate compensation through Swedish forestry, says Per Forssberg, Sales Lead at Eken.
