carbon removal projects
in healthy Swedish forests.
Eken pays forest owners to profitably transition towards forestry practices 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.
Advancement through technology is the way forward.
Eken signs agreement with the Church for forest carbon storage
Eken Financing AB gives SBTi companies the opportunity to invest in multi-year high quality offset projects with immediate climate impact and pays forest owners to profitably transition towards forestry practices with higher commercial, social, and biological value.
The purpose of the Swedish Church´s agreement with Eken is to increase the timber share at the leasehold property by extending the rotation period by 30 years, thereby improving carbon storage.
Eken will offer the carbon credits generated by this process to SBTi companies.
“The Swedish Church demonstrates great foresight and the potential for financing improved forestry through climate investments,” says Mårten Mattsson, Forest Lead at Eken.
