Investments in biodiversity projects

Biodiversity gives us life - an investment for our planet, our communities and our future.

Biodiversity Investments and Ecosystem Services represent a profitable opportunity for companies and communities in today's competitive world.

Biodiversity is essential for life and the long term future of business. Biodiversity and ecosystem services are critical to ensure human well-being, maintain and improve production systems, and add value to businesses large and small. All life and all economies depend on healthy ecosystems.

Biodiversity Credits

A Tailor-made sustainable financing mechanism.
Measurably channel mandatory and/or voluntary investments in biodiversity.
Each credit represents the transaction unit of an area in conservation and has a monetary value.

A Biodiversity Credit is an innovative approach to quantify in a transparent way the net positive impacts of your investment on 1 hectare (2.5 Acres) preserved, restored, or managed through sustainable land practices. It will allow you to invest in projects that add value to your company and creates tangible benefits for a region of land and its communities.
