Carbon investments in agriculture
We provide institutional investors with a sound strategy to invest in carbon removal credits generated in European farms
HeavyFinance is on a mission to remove 1 gigaton of CO2 from the atmosphere by 2050.
We are achieving it by promoting regenerative land management practices and providing our investors with collateralised, high-return investments.
Your investments will not only support farmers and improve their resilience to climate change but also pave the way for a more sustainable future for all.

HeavyFinance’s investment platform provides investors with control and transparency over their investment portfolio. With risk ratings from A+ (safest) to C (with the highest interest rate) and in-depth data that can be run through your risk assessment model beforehand.
Agricultural loans are backed with a first lien mortgage on liquid assets like agricultural land and heavy equipment. Additionally, most of the farmers are personally liable for their financial obligations. Being a low risk investment product, it has been generating average returns of 12% p.a.
HeavyFinance originates agricultural loans from different European countries, opening opportunities for wide diversification. We currently originate loans from Poland, Portugal, Lithuania, Latvia and Bulgaria.
The Role Of Carbon Credits
Carbon credits are a way to encourage and monetize the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. The carbon credits that HeavyFinance generates through its Green Loans, can be sold to companies and organisations looking to offset their carbon footprint and achieve carbon neutrality.
With Green Loans, farm owners begin or expand sustainable land management practices to store greenhouse emissions generated in other sectors. These practices might include agroforestry, regenerative agriculture, and conservation agriculture, which can help to store carbon in the soil and improve the health of the environment.
HeavyFinance is fully transparent and is all about real measured and accounted impact. Our activities are in line with ISO 14064-2 standard for saving the planet, articles 6, 8 and 9 of the Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR) classifications. To ensure full transparency and employment of best monitoring practices we also partnered up with Verra – a leading nonprofit organisation that operates standards in environmental and social markets.
Carbon credits we generate are sold to companies and organisations looking to offset their carbon footprint and achieve carbon neutrality, creating a win-win-win scenario for farmers, investors, and the environment.
