The world’s first rating on ecosystem resilience to reverse biodiversity loss
We make investment in nature based solutions easy and reliable by offering a science-based approach to rate and monitor the success factors for reforestation and afforestation projects in tropical forests.
Lack of trust and knowledge about operational risks.
Climate projects often do not restore nature but just create plantations for short-term carbon storage which can further harm the ecosystems.
Investors cannot possibly understand the technical risks for different restoration projects across multiple geographies and current standards are not covering ecosystem resilience.
The destruction of nature and the overstepping of planetary boundaries is destroying economic resources.
Governments are defining strict rules for companies to act upon reversing biodiversity loss.
Companies that destroy forests and biodiversity will not survive on the market in the long term.
A Due Diligence focused on operational risks for tropical forest restoration.
Our due diligence process is risk-based and projects are evaluated according to the likelihood of the potential success of the forest restoration strategy.
