The L'Oréal Fund for Nature Regeneration invests in Rize to make carbon finance easily accessible to all farms in France and Europe.
The L’Oréal Fund for Nature Regeneration – One of Group’s impact investment fund, managed by Mirova – is investing in Rize, a French technological start-up created in 2020 and part of the Station F “Future 40” ranking.
Its mission is to accelerate the low-carbon agricultural transition by facilitating access to carbon financing for farmers. Rize has developed a complete and unique digital solution to support farmers from the diagnostic phase of their farm to the marketing of carbon credits, including technical assistance for improving practices and impact monitoring.
Today, agriculture is responsible for more than 30% of global greenhouse gas emissions. Yet, we know that soils, particularly through sustainable agricultural practices, can sequester up to 25% of the CO2 that can be captured by ecosystems.
