Nature-based solutions for land owners

With the pressure on to reach net zero, a rapidly increasing number of businesses are turning their attention to carbon reduction strategies. As a direct result, offsetting solutions are becoming increasingly sought after which puts landholders in a unique position.

What are nature-based solutions?

Nature-based solutions (NbS) help to improve biodiversity and restore ecosystems. They are also one of our greatest weapons in the fight against climate change. Through carbon sequestration, NbS effectively and efficiently absorb carbon and store it, mitigating the effects of climate change.

Typical nature-based solutions include:
