Savimbo is a company created by, and for, indigenous smallfarmers in the Colombian Amazon.
Our aim is to employ 1 billion smallfarmers within 10 years to clean the world’s air.
Our current stock of 50k credits is from a 18,500 ha collective of >300 indigenous smallfarmers and 2 indigenous groups in the Tropical Andean biodiversity hotspot. Observations of indicators species are tracked in iNaturalist for >1 year and all farmers have a 30-year conservation contract for shared revenue from sales. We have >10 indigenous groups in 9 countries in our pipeline in either biodiversity hotspots or IUCN-threatened ecosystems and anticipate providing 178M credits to the global conservation market in the next 5 years. We anticipate certification of our biodiversity credits in October 2023.
What is a biodiversity credit?
One hectare of biodiversity hotspot protected for two months by a local smallfarmer or indigenous group.
How do you track impact?
Using an indicator species biodiversity methodology written by, and for, indigenous groups and translated to markets using applied chaos theory.
How much biodiversity revenue goes to locals?
We’re glad you asked because this is important to us too. The answer is 50% of biodiversity revenue goes to originating landowner. For Savimbo’s portion, ⅔ of the Savimbo’s founders are local indigenous leaders, 7% of the company is owned by successful growers, and 7% is owned by staff of which >50% is local experts.
