Nature needs more from us – not less

The current global economy is designed to make money whatever the cost to nature. But there is a cost.

Nature has a powerful value. Natural resources are needed for more than half of global GDP. Businesses, economies and societies around the world rely on the diverse plant and animal life on Earth today to create the products and services they need.

The biodiversity in our rainforests currently provides the resources for more than 25% of all drugs used in modern medicine. Today’s mangrove forests are stopping 18 million homes from being flooded each year. Protecting and restoring nature is vital to fighting climate change. Healthy forests, agricultural lands and other nature-based solutions could together provide more than 30% of the reduction in greenhouse gas emissions that we need to limit global warming to 2ºC.

the challenge

Nature is complex and difficult to measure. Traditional methods of measurement are expensive, slow and do not scale. If we can measure changes in biodiversity at scale, we can unlock incentives to reverse nature loss. Businesses are looking for ways to balance their impacts on nature – to become more Nature Positive. But find few options to invest in real, measured outcomes. Farmers, foresters and land managers want to work in ways that benefit nature, but need investment and a means to measure and prove the positive outcomes they generate.

The more we invest in nature, the more it will restore the planet, and the more people and businesses will thrive.

Our approach

Alt Text!

We use drones, acoustic and image sensors to monitor plant and animal life in detail on the ground across our suppliers' land. By applying technology, expert knowledge and machine learning, we can measure biodiversity – affordably, efficiently, accurately, and at scale.

By measuring the biodiversity gained on our suppliers' land, we can quantify the uplift to nature – the real outcomes of our suppliers’ actions.

We then turn these gains into tradeable assets, which we call Nature Uplifts, creating a way for people to invest in the restoration of nature across the world.

the impact

By measuring and creating value in biodiversity, we can start to build an economy that puts nature and business in balance.

The more the planet profits, the more investors, suppliers and businesses profit too.

Suppliers are paid to keep increasing the biodiversity on their land. Businesses make an immediate impact on their sustainability commitments. Investors in regeneration benefit from financial returns. And nature flourishes from the success of investment and business growth.

This is an economy that restores nature by regenerating biodiversity.

How it works

The circle of growth

Measure

We use drones, acoustic and image sensors to monitor plant and animal life in detail on the ground across our suppliers' land. By applying technology, expert knowledge and machine learning, we can measure biodiversity – efficiently, accurately, and at scale.

Quantify

We quantify the uplift in biodiversity by taking several key factors into account: the number of different species present, the abundance of each species, the prevalence of threatened species, and the size and cohesion of habitat. This uplift is then translated into a tradeable asset.

Trade

This tradeable asset can then be traded between suppliers and buyers on the Pivotal Nature Exchange. Both parties gain from the uplift in nature and monetary value.

We use drones, acoustic and image sensors to monitor plant and animal life in detail on the ground across our suppliers’ land. By applying expert knowledge and machine learning to model the density of species, we can measure biodiversity – efficiently, accurately, and at scale.

Quantify

We quantify the uplift in biodiversity by taking several key factors into account: the number of different species present, the abundance of each species, the prevalence of threatened species, and the size and cohesion of important habitat areas. This uplift is then translated into a tradeable asset.

This tradeable asset can then be traded between suppliers and buyers on the Pivotal Nature Exchange. Both parties gain from the uplift in nature and monetary value.

Each area of land can be measured at regular intervals. Over time, this leads to the continued, lasting restoration of nature through biodiversity regeneration
