VANCOUVER, BC, February 26, 2024 – DevvStream Holdings Inc.

“I’m honored to have the opportunity to represent DevvStream on the global stage and look forward to engaging with leaders on the important topic of ensuring integrity and restoring confidence in carbon markets,” said Mr. Trinh. “Transparency, accountability, and measurability are the pillars of DevvStream’s mission to democratize access to carbon markets, and that is a major reason why we have focused our attention on technology-based carbon offsetting solutions. Moving forward, in order to unlock the full potential of carbon credits as a valuable tool for meeting decarbonization goals, it is critical that we restore confidence in carbon markets through an industry-wide commitment to transparency.”

Through DevvStream’s Carbon Management and Carbon Investment platforms, the Company is focused on the co-development and generation of technology-based carbon offset credits, in partnership with governments and corporations worldwide, across voluntary and compliance markets. These programs leverage a systematic approach to the process of generating high quality technology-based carbon credits by partnering with project owners to either directly invest as a co-developer or execute project design, documentation, and certification efforts and associated costs in exchange for a substantial portion of multi-year carbon credit streams. Typical projects incur ongoing management and administrative costs during the contract term and generate recurring streams of carbon credits. Through a curated, technology-focused approach to the implementation of green technology projects, DevvStream aims to democratize access to carbon markets while helping governments and corporations worldwide meet their sustainability goals.

The interactive session will be featured as part of a full-day agenda in support of UNEA-6 and is intended to inform ministerial consultations held by Member States on the topic of carbon markets. Participants will include representatives from the business sector, governments, scientific institutions and civil society leaders.

On September 13, 2023, DevvStream and Focus Impact Acquisition Corp (Nasdaq: FIAC) (“Focus Impact”) announced that they have entered into a definitive business combination agreement for a business combination that would result in the combined company (DevvStream) to be listed on the Nasdaq Stock Market under the ticker symbol “DEVS”. On December 11, 2023, DevvStream announced the filing of a registration statement on Form S-4 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, which contains a preliminary proxy statement/prospectus in connection with the proposed business combination between DevvStream and Focus Impact (the “Business Combination”). Upon closing, the Business Combination is expected to result in DevvStream being the first publicly traded carbon credit company on a major U.S. stock exchange.
