Sustainable investments

Sustainability is the central value of asc impact


We believe that sustainability and economic success are not mutually exclusive, but beneficial. In agriculture actively increasing the soil’ humus content not only absorbs atmospheric CO2, but also increases crop yields. In forestry increasing growth and the size of cultivated areas are similarly suitable means of achieving higher yields in a climate-friendly manner.  

An organization that spans from our investors directly to our projects and target regions ensures that these values are put into practice daily from management to local employees.

Our deep operational involvement also promotes the employment of local staff, thus ensuring that prosperity is shared with the target regions. This is also a central component of asc impact's investment philosophy.
