Sindicatum Sustainable Resources is a global sustainable resources company headquartered in Singapore. Sindicatum Sustainable Resources is a developer, owner and operator of clean energy projects worldwide and a producer of sustainable products from natural resources and waste. Sindicatum was founded in 2005 and its key strategic shareholders include Citigroup Venture Capital International, PineBridge Investments, an independent asset manager with investment experience dating back to the 1960s, and with US $67.3 billion in assets under management, Black River Asset Management, an independently managed subsidiary of Cargill and Gulf One Bank BSC. Other shareholders include Foresight Venture Partners, a leading U.K. venture capital firm and CapitalE Group.

Sindicatum moved its headquarters from London to Singapore in 2009 to be closer to its assets, most of which are in Asia. In 2011, Sindicatum Sustainable Resources became its new trading name (replacing Sindicatum Carbon Capital) because it more accurately describes what the group does.[1]

Sindicatum develops climate change mitigation projects from conception through to implementation and long-term operation, working in partnership with companies and governments to deliver cost effective means by which to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Areas of specialization include abating GHG emissions from the waste management and natural resource sectors, as well as biomass and energy efficiency applications.

Sindicatum finances, executes and applies technologies to its projects and its team of engineers, technicians and climate change specialists working across four of the largest renewable energy markets (i.e. the US, China, India and South East Asia) to identify opportunities, develop solutions, implement projects and oversee their operation. Sindicatum has raised more than US$300 million to date, of which US$200 million is invested in Asia and the United States. To date, Sindicatum has 20 projects in China, India, Southeast Asia and the United States.

Sindicatum is headquartered in Singapore and has business units and offices in New Delhi, Bangkok, Jakarta, London, Beijing, Taiyuan and Philippines.
