Our story

Scature was founded in 2024 by Bart van Beuzekom, Laura Payne, Robert Smits and Pawel Paplinski sharing the same vision.

We envision a world where nurturing the health of both people and the planet is the standard. Instead of depleting resources, we aim to enhance value and vitality, fostering a biodiverse world of interconnected beauty, life and abundance. The key area to create this world lies in supporting local carbon farmers, as they create biodiversity while storing co2. This co2 storage and these climate positive suppliers are what companies need to get to a climate neutral future.

Nature-based solutions

Especially nature-based solutions can transform current monoculture, energy-consuming agricultural practices into regenerative agricultural methods that are more resilient, store carbon and water, increase biodiversity, and benefit all life on Earth. We believe that the voluntary carbon market is a good way to help finance this transition, and that innovation is key to finding new nature-based solutions to reach this goal.

Finance the Carbon Farmer

Small carbon farmers often lack the knowledge, contacts, or time to obtain the desperately needed carbon finance. This is where we come in, helping those farmers certify their carbon removal credits, connecting them to clients, and thus supporting the transition to a regenerative economy.

Our Team

Bart van Beuzekom

Co Founder

Serene Peaks Lodge

Bart's encounter with Life in Syntropy in 2016 highlighted agriculture's role in combating climate change and producing quality, biodiversity-positive food. With a Master's in Quantitative Finance from Erasmus University Rotterdam, Bart started at BlackRock in London, then served as Director at ORTEC in Eswatini and Brazil. Passionate about environmental preservation, he founded Scave to explore regenerative agroforestry. Realizing the link between land cultivation and biodiversity, he co-founded Scature. This initiative empowers local smallholder farmers to adopt regenerative practices, producing biodiverse, nutrient-dense food.

Robert Smits

Co Founder

Serene Peaks Lodge

Robert comes from a commercial Oil and Gas background. He made a pivotal change in life together with his family in early 2020 by buying a piece of land in Brazil and transforming a conventional farm into a permaculture, regenerative farm. By applying syntropic agroforestry practices, he managed to increase the soil organic carbon by 3% and now produces coffee, fruits, nuts and Jussara. Returning to Holland in early 2024, he now pursues a more sustainable career path by helping carbon farmers find financial means with Scature.

Laura Payne

Co Founder

Serene Peaks Lodge

Laura's extensive background in sustainable tourism reflects her commitment to supporting small farmers in Albania over the years. As a co-founder of Albania's inaugural incoming adventure tour operator, she facilitated vital connections between these farmers and tourists, driven by her passion for the symbiotic relationship between people and the planet. Now, based in the Netherlands, Laura channels this dedication into her work at Scature, where she continues to empower carbon farmers through economic opportunities.

Pawel Paplinski

Paweł Paplinski brings 20+ years of digital marketing expertise to Scature. He held senior roles at Orange and Albert Heijn, ran Growthmatics, and promoted carbon removal solutions for Fonds Natuurinclusieve Streekboerderijen.

Restoring ecosystems

Restoring ecosystems requires an active approach; 'leaving it be' often isn't enough. Nature reserves where we take no action often deteriorate. We shouldn't just talk about 'protecting', but also about nourishing ecosystems. Just as we don't expect a sick person to heal simply by lying in bed, we must actively intervene to restore ecosystems.

Efficient Agriculture

The traditional agricultural system consumes much more energy than it produces, but there are alternatives that are significantly more efficient and can make our soils more fertile. Restoring devastated landscapes is possible by gradually building up nutrient-rich soils through mulching and promoting succession in ecosystems.

Our Business

As a steward ship owned company, we prioritize long-term sustainability and the well-being of all stakeholders over short-term profits. Our ownership and decision-making structures are designed to ensure a commitment to social responsibility, environmental stewardship, and our company's mission. Unlike traditional shareholder-owned companies, we aim to prevent short-term profit maximization and instead focus on creating lasting positive impact for society and the environment.

90% of the carbon credit revenue is utilized for regeneration and grow the business of the carbon farmers. We welcome investors that share our mission.

Our Values

The following core values guide our actions and decisions as we strive to make a meaningful and lasting contribution to a sustainable and regenerative future:

1 Syntropic Biodiversity 

By prioritizing biodiversity within all systems, syntropy aims to enhance ecosystem services and to recognize humans as an integral part of the ecosystem, reduce the need for external inputs, and promote long-term sustainability and resilience.

2 Hands-on 

We believe in a hands-on approach, and we're just as happy in the office as we are in the mud—visiting farmers to understand their methods and see firsthand how they store carbon and create life. This approach allows us to continuously learn and improve the solutions.

3 Joy

We believe that everything that is good in life comes from an inner joy. If something isn’t working we get bogged down in it. We get tired and won’t be able to improve or regenerate it. Therefore joy is the prime indicator to show that we’re on the right path.

4 Leading by example

By demonstrating that nature-based solutions are effective and solve many problems, we believe that others will be inspired to follow suit, leading to the regeneration of our systems.

5 Integrity

We uphold the highest standards of integrity and transparency in all our operations. We believe in honest communication, ethical decision-making, and delivering on our commitments. Trust forms the foundation of our relationships with partners and stakeholders.
