SECURE FINANCING FOR YOUR MASS TIMBER PROJECTS TODAY
ARE YOU EXPERIENCING A FINANCING CHALLENGE WITH MASS TIMBER?
Construction is on track to consume 60% of the world’s remaining carbon budget, and members of the real estate and construction industries are seeking to implement effective low-carbon and carbon-storing building materials to lower overall emissions by 2050.
Yet, due to the current green premium for low-carbon and carbon-storing materials, developers are experiencing a funding gap, slowing the adoption of these effective solutions.
But what if we could close that funding gap by creating value for mass timber’s carbon reduction and storage potential.?
YOUR FINANCING SOLUTION
Aureus Earth is a carbon finance company, on a mission to decarbonize the built environment.
We recognize that developers have a deep commitment to reducing the carbon footprint of their projects, but often experience difficulty in funding the desired impact.
We monetize your mass timber project’s carbon reduction and storage and provide equity funding for your project. This unique offering unlocks the building’s ability to act as a carbon sink and combat climate change, closes the funding gap, and scales carbon storage and reduction in the built environment.
We have developed carbon asset-backed securities to create cash flow for a developer’s project. Carbon physically stored in mass timber and avoided building with mass timber versus other conventional materials.
The monetization of carbon is creating a financial win-win for developers and investors. With the recognition of the increased project value, developers and investors see increased returns from tenants, prompting investors to fund these projects. In turn, Aureus Earth’s unique Carbon Finance platform will propel architects, engineers, contractors, developers, and investors to engage further in green building projects, accelerating the built environment’s ability to combat climate change.
