      Natural Capital and Carbon Strategy

      We are at the forefront of the intersection between finance and nature, providing the link between investors and landowners to enable the realisation of Net Zero and carbon off-setting objectives.


      Pioneering an ahead-of-its-time biodiversity net gain solution for the development industry

      Across the UK, we are enabling carbon sequestration and biodiversity enhancement projects, at scale, to deliver recognised carbon credits for reporting and carbon reduction targets.

      The voluntary carbon markets are set to grow exponentially in the next decade and we are harnessing that will to transition to a more sustainable way of life by facilitating tangible opportunities in woodland creation and peatland restoration.

      We are also developing opportunities in regenerative agriculture and looking beyond traditional commercial outputs to ecosystem services, which deliver both financial and sustainability goals. Land-based assets appeal to a wide investment pool seeking sound, green ventures with longevity.

      As well as a conduit for the landowner / investor relationship, we will take care of the paperwork too. Our network of professional contacts ensures water-tight, workable agreements to aid our clients’ journey towards Net Zero and more sustainable business models.

      Our understanding of nature-based solutions comes from a rich expertise in sustainable forestry management, landscape-scale stewardship and rural professional services. We are committed to realising your green ambition.

      Service options

      Biodiversity Net Gain

      Incoming legislation demands a 10% gain in biodiversity on all new development schemes in England. Environmental enhancement is no longer a ‘nice-to-have’ – it’s mandatory.


      Compulsory Purchase

      However a compulsory purchase order arises, an experienced, informed and coherent view is essential to understand your particular situation and ensure optimum compensation for any loss accrued during the process.
