About Blue Green World


Blue Green World values the services of living natural assets to develop nature-based markets that fund the regeneration and stewardship of the natural world.

The new financial markets made available by BGW's innovation allow countries, companies, and individuals to take actions to address climate change, biodiversity loss and to meet the UN Sustainable Development Goals.



"A sustainable future needs a new nature-based economic paradigm". Ralph Chami


Living natural assets have a significant monetary value...

Seagrass, mangroves, saltmarsh, peatlands, elephants and whales all deliver ecosystem services vital to our future survival.

Global commitments to reduce carbon and preserve nature has created a DEMAND for these nature services.

By keeping these natural resources protected, healthy and growing, countries can SUPPLY ecosystem services and gain a new source of wealth and wellbeing.

A new nature-based economy to restore our planet is here.


We cannot solve climate change without nature.

Nature is the most proven and safest technology we have.

We create new markets that harness the power of nature to reduce climate change risk while also restoring our natural world.


Global challenges need financial innovation

The dual risks of climate change and biodiversity loss pose existential threats to our future.

Yet a massive financing gap into nature-based solutions remains. Up to $4.1 trillion is required by 2030, and $8.1 trillion by 2050.

Blue Green World brings innovative financial market opportunities to help close that gap.
