Thriving environment.
Thriving community.

MarVivo pioneers and implements blue carbon and biodiversity projects creating funding mechanisms for the sustainable development of coastal communities.


Industry Pioneers

MarVivo was founded in 2019 by the founders of Infinite-Earth Corporation, authors of the first REDD+ forest carbon accounting methodology, and project developers of the Rimba Raya Biodiversity Reserve. As ocean enthusiasts we recognized the value of blue ecosystems as a vital tool to keeping our planet below 1.5C. We built a global team of experts to unlock and protect their potential.


At MarVivo, we are committed to preserving our remaining marine ecosystems. Through rigorous research, sustainable practices, and partnerships with local communities, we strive to protect and restore our natural world for generations to come.

MarVivo embraces cutting-edge technologies and innovative approaches to tackle environmental challenges. From developing advanced monitoring systems to designing sustainable solutions, we harness the power of innovation to drive positive change and create a more sustainable future.

We believe that a thriving planet starts with strong and engaged communities. MarVivo works closely with local stakeholders, empowering them to become active participants in conservation efforts. Together, we foster a sense of environmental stewardship, knowledge-sharing, and collaboration for a healthier and more connected world.
