Our story

ORIGINS

Inspired by the Amazon, born in the Redwoods

Pachama’s founders were born and raised in South America where they witnessed the devastating deforestation of the mighty Amazon rainforest, prompting them to action. As technologists, they moved to Silicon Valley and, from a cabin in the mighty Redwood forests, Pachama was born to bridge accelerating technologies with the urgent need for conservation and restoration funding to address climate change and biodiversity loss.

GROWTH

Restoring millions of hectares

Pachama's mission swiftly attracted talented engineers, scientists and investors from around the world, who felt called to invest their time and money in the cause. In the subsequent years, Pachama helped fund projects that restored more than 10K hectares and conserved more than 2M hectares of native forest around the world, equipping dozens of Fortune 500 companies with the insights needed to confidently invest in nature. Today, Pachama continues to advance its technology platform and ecosystem to catalyze a new generation of nature-based carbon projects, helping carbon markets evolve.
