Our Story

It’s a crucial moment for our planet, and while our team comes from a diverse background, we have all arrived at Great Yellow for the same reason—to meet the challenge of the climate & biodiversity crisis we are facing at a global scale. 

Our shared belief is that enabling financial mechanisms to fund nature restoration can have the transformative power to tackle climate and biodiversity breakdown. 

Just as importantly, we are united in our optimism. Restoration at scale can be done. It can be done now. It can help us mitigate, adapt and find joy along the difficult way to a stable planet.

Our part to play is to bridge the vast resources of the corporate sector to nature restoration projects, on a magnificent scale.  Our hope and ambition is to leave a lasting impact that will resonate for generations to come.
