Cultivo is a climate focused fintech building nature-based portfolios with strong social and environmental safeguards. By connecting investors with the right projects, Cultivo is boosting robust nature-based solutions that can address climate change in three different ways: (i) decreasing GHG emissions related to deforestation and land use, (ii) capturing and storing CO2, and (iii) enhance resilience of ecosystems (ICUN, 2022).
Why we invested
With more than 15 million hectares of worldwide grasslands, forests, mangroves under its management, and tens of thousands of credits already sold, Cultivo is setting a new rumbo for carbon credits. We at Rumbo are proud to be supporting Latin-American talent transforming climate entrepreneurship, and Cultivo’s CEO, Manuel Piñuela is a textbook example of the “hows” and “whys” of our investment thesis. Piñuela, backed by a team of scientists, operators, financiers and a strong supporting ecosystem of partners, is already revolutionizing carbon credits and nature-based portfolios through science, data, transparency and trust, allowing for true impact to happen.
