For investors, we aim to develop a large pipeline of ‘investment ready’ projects that accelerate climate finance to where it’s most needed.

We establish a new benchmark for nature-based climate investments in emerging economies, where climate change has disproportionately high adverse effects.

Flagship Project:

Yen Asaase

(meaning ‘Our Earth’ in Twi)

Degas’ flagship carbon project generates high-integrity carbon credits from regenerative agricultural practices implemented with partner farmers. Our project business model catalyzes new finance for a combination of improved agricultural land management and energy efficiency projects in rural areas of Northern Ghana by leveraging the current and projected operational footprint of our Farmer Financing business.By digitizing and simplifying participation in Yen Asaase, we support the large-scale transition to regenerative agriculture in Northern Ghana, while also validating a benefit-sharing framework that can become a blueprint for the expansion of similar projects on a global scale.
