Our Values

NOBON is committed to creating impact. That's why we focus on community-based carbon removal projects in developing countries. Through a holistic solution for carbon project financing, carbon credit issuance, sales and integrated finance, we create more social impact on the path to net zero.



Our core purpose is to drive positive social and environmental impact. Fighting climate change while improving living standards in developing countries is our raison d'être. 



We work with high-quality reduction projects with a high degree of additionality that truly contribute to a sustainable future. 



We provide transparency and trust through full visibility and traceability in market prices, fees and trading activity. 



We provide institutional custody of carbon assets and secure, encrypted transactions so that every carbon credit issued and transacted contributes to global net-zero emissions.



We use advanced technology and smart operational procedures to reduce transaction costs and lead times.



We uphold the highest integrity and all our credits are third-party monitored, verified & validated.

Our Story

NOBON was founded in 2020 by Joakim Blom and Michael Akampa, under the name Investure, with the goal of mobilising more capital to developing markets.

We support African companies to raise equity, debt and blended finance funding, and professional investors to co-invest and syndicate on our private market platform.


With a vision to create impact at scale, we now welcome a broader audience to join us on our mission to combat climate change.
