We are an impact fund that supports projects facilitating harmonious relationships between human activity and nature. We seek to tackle global warming through the enhancement of natural carbon sinks.
Edaphon, as a term, refers to the aggregate of organisms that live in the soil, or, soil life.

Convinced that soil life is crucial to reaching solutions to the carbon crisis, we focus on projects that act as natural carbon sinks and contribute towards the restoration of essential ecosystems.

Our key principles are harmony between human activity and nature, the tackling of global warming through processes that centre biodiversity, and the seeking of climate solutions focused on natural carbon sinks and ecosystem support.

Our story began in 2015, in Europe, when our main sponsors started focusing on impact investing. The emphasis quickly turned to decarbonisation and biodiversity through the enhancement of naturally existing processes.

Long-term partnerships have become central to our investment process, as we understand the importance of sustained support in our investments, to allow for each project to reach its full potential and impact.

Our Investment Scope

Natural ecosystems are the biggest source of carbon removal from the atmosphere. We look for solutions that support these ecosystems in capturing carbon and decreasing carbon emissions. (For example: regenerative agriculture, forest management and ecosystem restoration.)

We also believe in investing in technology and education, and in commercial innovations that help mitigate carbon emissions and threats to biodiversity.

What We Look For

  • Companies that have already commercialised their product in a manner where the impact is inherent to their commercial success
  • Teams that gather the right amount of specialised expertise, with a diversity of profiles and experiences
  • Scalability, as we believe valuable solutions are found in those that can be replicated and scaled to gain systemic impact
  • Science-based projects


We do not have pre-defined expectations for establishing relationships with the founders or management of our investments.

Our experience and knowledge mean that our partners often ask for advice, coaching, or our the presence as a board member.

We may decide to invest in funds that have similar perspectives, in which case we are interested in creating network synergies for our portfolio companies.

Geographic Focus

Being based in Brussels, Belgium, naturally the majority of our investments are in Europe. Nevertheless, depending on our involvement within the company, we are open to global investments and already have several investments outside of Europe.
