we’re all connected to nature

To create resilient, healthy societies we must protect the natural systems on which we all depend.

To protect and restore our natural ecosystems we need a transformation in how we value nature and biodiversity within our economy.

At Terratai, we believe that investing in and supporting business models that protect, sustainably manage and restore our natural ecosystems is a vital step in reducing nature and biodiversity loss.

We want to build community resilience as we face climate change and harness more financing for the protection of our planet.

fixing our food systems is one of the most powerful ways we can protect nature

Our food systems (how we grow, harvest, process and consume our food) are inextricably dependent on nature, but they are also the single largest driver of ecosystem and biodiversity loss, and a major source of greenhouse gas emissions. In Asia, growing population pressure, changing diets, and climate change will further deepen these pressures.

This impacts us all.

Our mission is to create and support innovative, impactful, and scalable businesses that are tackling the systemic food system challenges driving nature and biodiversity loss in Asia.

Through our expertise and our investments, we will build a vibrant network of businesses that demonstrate that nature-based companies can protect and restore nature at scale.
