About us

Earthly is empowering hundreds of organisations globally to tackle climate breakdown and biodiversity collapse, actively contributing to the protection and restoration of our planet.

We do this by identifying the world’s most impactful nature-based projects that align with our client’s environmental and social goals.

At the heart of our platform sits our rigorous project quality assessment that screens 106 data points across each project’s carbon, biodiversity and social impact.

With funding from Google, we are now helping 600+ global companies invest into the top 5% scoring nature-based projects to de-risk their climate contributions and become the regenerative business leaders of tomorrow.

Co-founder & CCO

Lorenzo Curci

Lorenzo Curci is the co-founder and CCO of Earthly. Prior to starting Earthly, Lorenzo managed a team of 30 at Credit Suisse within the Equity Derivatives division. The allure of entrepreneurial life, however, was too strong and in 2013, he started Huez, a technical cycling brand, with the aim of getting people out of cars and onto bikes.

In 2018, Lorenzo felt more could be done to address climate change and so, alongside Olly, he founded Earthly with a mission to help businesses invest in high-quality nature-based solutions.

Want our take?

The Earthly team is full of exciting individuals, experienced at delivering engaging talks, workshops and hosting panel conversations online and in-person.

On stage, we bring colourful visuals, imagery and interactive elements. We love talking about nature-based solutions and climate tech, but also have plenty to say on purpose-led business, impact investing, climate start-ups and the road to net zero.
