The world’s first rating on ecosystem resilience to reverse biodiversity loss
Our science-based due diligence makes investments in nature-based solutions easy and reliable by rating and monitoring 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 cause further harm to ecosystems.
Investors do not posses the technical knowledge to understand the risks of different restoration projects across multiple geographies, whilst current standards do not consider 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 is risk-based, which means projects are evaluated according to the likelihood of success for the chosen forest restoration strategy.
A rating of results against baselines, additionality, permanence, data sources and leakage, etc.
A rating which captures how well the project fulfils criteria for IPLC and stakeholder engagement.
A rating of the trustworthiness of the project developer, e.g. regarding financial stability, reputation, etc.
A rating which incorporates an analysis of the project's regional political context and specific risks to its success.
A rating which indicates whether the technical provisions of the restoration are appropriate relative to scientific standards.
