Our Story

Fostering the Growth of Tomorrow's Resilient Forests across Europe

Ecobase was founded in 2021 by Jaan Sepping with the goal to unlock carbon finance for European landowners and accelerate the potential for climate action in Europe via natural carbon sinks. With a seed funding of 2.5M, led by Combiwood Grupp, Ecobase is set out to accelerate its platform capabilities and new product development, as the company aims to offer solutions that support its landowners in every aspect of forest management, from new forest creation to enhancement of existing forest practices. Ecobase sees itself becoming a trusted carbon project adviser and developer to its landowners, offering them a wider suite of services to effectively manage.
