How It All Started...

Two cousins – a marketing consultant and a financial consultant – were looking for opportunities to build a healthier planet while making a decent profit. When the Paris Agreement concluded that the global energy mix should include 36% renewable energy in 2030, an opportunity presented itself. What if there would be a profitable way to improve the environment – and everyone could be a part of it?

A new phenomenon known as Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil (HVO) came to their attention. This renewable or green fuel could  be the answer to the increasing demand of renewable energies and compensate the environment at the same time. What if we could give retail-access to the production of the future of fuels and generate a decent profit while doing so?

The solution was found in the Pongamia Pinnata tree – a tree that produces nuts from which Renewable Fuel (HVO) can be produced. Anyone can get their own trees and profit from the harvests each year. Together with our reforestation partner we make sure all the trees are planted, maintained, harvested, the nuts pressed and the crude oil sold to the refineries of major oil companies. Each year, participants receive the profit from the selling of their oil – and saving the environment while doing so.
