We catalyze social & environmental impact innovations through our systems thinking and global partnerships. We develop purpose driven innovation & creativity while fueling transformational movements in the climate sector.

We are an international development company established in Colombia as a result of identifying an urgent need in the empowerment of underserved rural communities. Our impact began by integrating these communities to global chains through exports. Currently, we leverage the carbon economy to streamline the complexities of nature-based solutions and scale in Latin America.

Theory of Change

Substantial efforts are needed to ensure a systematic and structural change. Well-designed incentives can encourage the investors to finance more and to further innovate in low emission, climate resilient sustainability solutions. Standard compensation mechanisms have not yet been deployed at scale, and finance for conservation still represents only a small portion of the broader sustainable investment market.

If tailored financial and policy mechanisms to value natural capital are deployed,then bio-businesses that contribute to climate mitigation, resilience andadaptability to climatic threats of local people in the value chains and ecosystems will become financially viable, expand, and provide a new model for low-emission resilient business development, because communities will be able to build capacity, private support will be pooled through thematic bonds and incentivizing policies, and knowledge on climate-resilient and low-emission practices will be generated and disseminated.

our mission
Restore nature on a large-scale with integrity, at the speed that the climate crisis demands


"selvitas", a fusion of the Latin words for forest and life, encapsulates our commitment to symbiosis, resilience, and growth. We foster symbiotic relationships, creating a win-win scenario for the environment, rural communities, and our company. Our resilience mirrors that of the forests we help cultivate, enabling us to withstand challenges from macroeconomic downturns to environmental crises. Embodying the growth inherent in forests, we promote not just carbon sequestration, but also community development and economic empowerment. Our success is defined by our tangible, positive impact on climate resilience and environmental stewardship.
