Never miss another interview! Join Devin here: http://bit.ly/joindevin. Bruno Marino, PhD, founder of Planet Alpha Corp, is working to finance projects to preserve, protect and expand forests in cooperation with local communities. Using modern technology, the new company can actually measure the amount of carbon sequestered by the forest. The company is conducting a $50 million Regulation A+ offering that is open to the public. Preliminary Interview with Bruno D.V. Marino, the founder and CEO of Planet Alpha Corp. The following is a brief pre-interview that provides context for the recorded interview you may watch or listen to at the top of this article. What is the purpose of your crowdfunding campaign? PαC will develop forest carbon storage projects across the planet with a mission to reduce emissions of CO2 and greenhouse gases (“GHG”). We do good by supporting forest landowners and communities for their reduction of CO2 emissions through forest tree planting, growth, conservation and management. The ultimate mission of our company is to reverse and slow deforestation, one of the most challenging global and humanitarian issues of our time and of our future. PαC will develop innovative forest carbon sequestration projects resulting in unique measurement based products that are sold to buyers worldwide, creating revenue while ultimately fulfilling its mission of supporting landowners, reversing deforestation and reducing the burden of atmospheric GHGs. As a for-profit company in what is sometimes perceived as a non-profit endeavor we strive to be seen as a signal of positivism for humanity. Our mission as a successful corporate business is to pursue lofty goals such as improvement of the human condition and the sustainability of the planet for future generations. Science (e.g., monitoring and analysis) will likely not save us but people making choices that restore and defragment nature have great potential to manage the Earth for future generations. Our core principle is embodied in leaving a “legacy” of forest sustainability and vibrant communities that manage forests. Every individual and entity can participate and build a legacy for all.
