Terra Carta Accelerator

An ambition to scale finance towards people, planet and nature

The ‘Terra Carta’ offers the basis of a recovery plan that puts nature, people and planet at the heart of global value creation – one that will harness the precious, irreplaceable power of nature combined with the transformative innovation and resources of the private sector.

The Sustainable Markets Initiative’s Terra Carta Accelerator is a major initiative made up of an accelerator program and a new fund that will invest in nature-based projects and nature tech companies at scale to tackle the global nature crisis.

The Accelerator program aims to build capability and capacity across early-stage nature projects and companies, catalysing the investable nature market.

The Terra Carta Accelerator Fund will invest globally in nature-based projects and nature tech companies with the potential to deliver both commercial returns to investors and biodiversity outcomes.

The Terra Carta Accelerator initiative is in response to His Majesty King Charles III’s challenge to the Sustainable Markets Initiative to develop five land-based and five water-based initiatives per year through to 2030.

The Sustainable Markets Initiative announced the Terra Carta Accelerator initiative in May and recently provided an update on the Fund’s aim of raising US$125million and the appointment of Pollination as General Partner of the fund. Pollination is also overseeing the Accelerator Program, working closely with the Sustainable Markets Initiative and its members to achieve the objectives set out for the initiative.

The aim is for the Accelerator program to be launched in 2024, with a request for proposals expected to be sought from interested early-stage projects and companies to participate in the Accelerator program early in the year.

Pollination will update this webpage as more details become available.
