Our Purpose

We exist to support communities, protect biodiversity and limit global temperature rises by linking high-impact conservation projects with responsible finance at scale.

We develop and grow sources of demand for conservation projects through partnerships with corporations. Our work ensures that corporate sustainability standards and certifications have verified impact while addressing a critical gap in long-term finance for natural ecosystem conservation and restoration.

We are piloting this approach in Southeast Asia through a unique finance platform that links forest conservation finance directly to raw material procurement for 30 years.

The finance platform has three forms:

– Collectives (for collaborations)
– Solutions (for compliance)
– Climate (for carbon markets)

Our Vision

Our vision is a world where healthy ecosystems go hand-in-hand with good business.

Nature, people and the climate depend on companies delivering on their sustainability commitments, yet most existing models are not fit for purpose. Their sources, duration and ambition are insufficient, resulting in weal incentives to achieve credible impacts at scale.

Lestari Capital is at the forefront of a movement to embed forest conservation finance into the companies’ business models. Through our unique finance model, our corporate partners link ecosystem outcomes directly to their procurement of raw materials over the long term.

Our Values

We are an advocate and change agent for ecosystems; including the communities that rely on them, and those working to protect them.

We show that equitable market mechanisms can deliver lasting conservation outcomes.

We seek ethical participation of the private sector in conservation.

We seek to foster a holistic understanding of land use from the market to the ground, rooted in transparency.

Our interdisciplinary background in conservation and finance leads us to recognize the importance of verified conservation outcomes.

Our work to promote efficient private sector investment in conservation does not, and never will, support or endorse “cut and pay” systems.

We acknowledge and defend the rights of the local communities that depend on our world’s ecosystems.

Team Lestari

A uniquely interdisciplinary team of conservation, market and finance professionals.
