Unearthing revenue with biodiversity enhancements

We work with private and corporate landowners, as well as farmers, to make a positive impact on the climate and biodiversity through verified enhancement programmes


The emerging environmental markets around carbon capture, biodiversity net gain (BNG) and green energy present new commercial opportunities as companies try to find ways to mitigate against the effects their activities have on the natural world.

We help diversify your land and take advantage of rapidly evolving revenue streams in the nature markets, including Woodland Carbon Units and Biodiversity Units. Where desired, we can also assess the commercial potential for renewable energy generation, such as solar farms or battery storage.

For these projects, we only target marginal, low-yielding, derelict, or disused land.

Did you know, woodland creation isn't your only option?

We’re here to support you every step of the way. From measuring the potential of your land assets for biodiversity enhancements and units’ generation, all the way through to securing a financial return in the nature markets by connecting you directly with buyers.


1. Assess land potential

We start by conducting a Preliminary Ecological Assessment (PEA). This includes a Biodiversity Metric Calculation, consultation with statutory stakeholder groups such as Natural England and the Forestry Commission, culminating in a Site Feasibility Report.

2. Plan site enhancements

Next comes the site registration and design, followed by grant applications for nature-based projects like woodland creation. At this stage, we can also design the positioning of and landscaping around any desired renewable energy projects.

3. Deliver the project

We’ll order the species mix and prepare the land for enhancements. Depending on site characteristics and landowner preference, there may be further site development, including pond restoration, hedge laying, orchard creation or solar panel installation.

4. Ongoing management

Our land management team carry out ongoing monitoring and maintenance of the site to maximise carbon, wildlife, and community benefits. We also arrange for regular independent validation and verification for the carbon or biodiversity units produced.
