Conservation firm at forefront of green recovery launches drive for investors

A conservation specialist based in Scotland and New Zealand has launched a drive for investors to help in the fight against climate change.

Managing director Alex Foulkes.

Kaitiaki Consulting is releasing 20 per cent of its share capital as it ramps up its drive for large scale land redevelopment and “rewilding” in Scotland.

The business aims to be at the forefront of a green recovery to the coronavirus pandemic and is behind the Billion Trees Scotland reforestation campaign launched earlier this year. It has brought in a team of specialists in ecological restoration, forestry, ornithology, botany, soil science and a raft of other key sciences as part of its growth plans.

Managing director Alex Foulkes said: “This is a chance for investors to make a difference and join us in the fight to address the climate crisis and save the country’s incredible biodiversity.

“We will work with businesses, landowners, local authorities and other groups like ours to find a way to embrace the green new deal needed for the post Covid-19 recovery, so we can all play an essential part in reducing carbon emissions.

“Organisations such as councils, businesses and others are committed to reaching net zero, and we provide the strategy, expertise and on the ground management to make this happen.

“For landowners we offer a long-term stream of income generation and an opportunity to play a significant part in supporting the Scottish Government’s net zero commitment over several decades.”

The £100,000 share release will see 200 shares released at £500 per share, and the company is seeking a number of large investors.

In addition to the Scottish Government’s pledge to plant 36 million trees every year by 2030, the growth of new green industries and jobs will help transform rural communities. The drive to implement these changes is creating opportunities for investors.
