What do we do?

Did you know there is a way to invest in a healthier planet, while making a sustainable interest on the side?

We grow an oil-producing tree called the ‘Pongamia’ tree. Each year, the nuts that grow on these trees are harvested and pressed to extract their oil.

This crude oil is sold to the major oil companies, who will refine it into green, renewable diesel. Each year, you get the interest from the oil from your trees while neutralizing your environmental footprint in doing so!

Environmental Benefits

Do your part - carry your weight

True Sustainability

Each tree that is planted has the life expectancy to outlive you and us easily. The total process of planting, growing, harvesting, refining and using the trees’ oil (as green, renewable fuel), compared to the continuous COproduction, absorbs more CO2 than the fuel emits. One tree is about the equivalent of 570 km or 350 miles driven a year. That means, if you drive 10,000 kilometer a year (or 6,214 miles) a year, you will need 18 trees to neutralise your environmental footprint. And that as long as you live!

Benefits for Everyone

We use a 20-year partnership between you and your tree. This way, the tree is most profitable and the land most accessible. After the twenty years, the trees’ ownership will transfer to the land owners (mostly local cattle farmers).
