Pollination has partnered with HSBC Global Asset Management with the ambition to create the world’s largest dedicated natural capital asset management company.

The joint venture intends to establish a series of natural capital funds, investing in a diverse range of activities that preserve, protect and enhance nature over the long-term, and address climate change. Investment themes will include:

  • Regenerative and sustainable agriculture
  • Sustainable forestry
  • Oceans, including sustainable fisheries, coastal restoration and blue carbon
  • Biodiversity and wildlife protection and restoration
  • Natural capital and real assets that generate carbon credits

These funds will make Australian and global investments, in line with the goal of the Paris Agreement.

Measurable, additional and long-term impact is a fundamental principle of the investment approach. Each investment opportunity will be evaluated against high environmental standards, and needs to demonstrate the potential to deliver positive environmental impacts over its lifetime.
