Save your local forest and earn money with this new stock exchange for biodiversity
Single Earth is an unusual marketplace connecting forests and wetlands to buyers, but it’s not cutting down the trees or starting farms…it’s monetising nature by selling carbon offsets with an online platform that ‘tokenises’ land, forests, swamps, wetlands and wildlife in order to save them. Merit firmly believes that life can be beautiful again, that the trees can keep growing and the animals can roam freely – with your help. The world of carbon and biodiversity offsetting is huge, and growing, but this world is not usually so accessible to most. Single.Earth opens things up so anyone can invest in the “bank of nature”. “Single.Earth combines my two passions – fixing the environmental crisis with scalable game-changing technologies,” Merit explains. Single.Earth also connects landowners with sustainable companies and private investors to ensure that the natural resources remain intact and the land is now safe, and even monitors the land using satellite and sensor data. Today it operates globally, always dedicated to connecting forest owners and companies locally.
