We are Corekees

We create impact by making sustainability profitable. We consider this the only way to achieve lasting results. That might not be a popular opinion, but it is nevertheless an economic reality. By building Europe's leading sustainability investment platform, we strive to contribute to our vision for the future: a world in which people and their economic activities support the planet that supports us.

From Paraguay to Rotterdam

In 2016, Nick van Heesewijk visited the Pongamia project in Paraguay for the first time. As he walked over the Paraguayan Chaco, he realized two things: 'First of all: this has the potential to become really really big and second: this can really change the world for the better.' Back in the Netherlands, he discussed his ideas with his cousin Tamar, and together they founded Corekees. What started as a small scale tree planting investment company has since grown into an organisation with the ambition to become Europe's leading sustainability investment platform. Our mission? To create a more sustainable world by making sustainability financially viable.
