Our services are end-to-end taking our clients from benchmarking and strategic consultancy, through mapping and measuring, modelling opportunities, implementing and monetising outcomes, managing assets, to monitoring and reporting change.
Our nature-based solutions, ecosystem service assessments and GIS consultancy are based on the very best in applied geospatial data and modelling to provide a holistic view of our client’s portfolio regardless of its size. We provide the evidence and insight which our clients need to develop and implement a plan, monitor progress towards the desired state, and monetise, report and communicate change.
The 5 MS
We use our ‘5M’ framework when we journey with landowners and land managers to unlock The Value of Where® across all ‘3 P’ capitals: Planet (environmental), People (social) and Profit (financial).
Map & Measure
Identify what you currently have. Establish a robust geospatial baseline of your land’s natural capital, measuring habitats, biodiversity networks, carbon storage, farming, water flow regulation and water quality. Create a targeted soil sampling strategy.
Our detailed habitat maps captured from the latest satellite and aerial photography imagery provide the authoritative, consistent, and most accurate and up-to-date baseline – the starting point for unlocking natural, social and financial value.
Understand where your land is working well and identify on-the-ground opportunities for enhancing nature recovery and delivering ecosystem services.
Our market-leading natural capital tool models opportunities for biodiversity enhancement (grassland, peatland, wetland and woodland networks), carbon sequestration, farming sustainably, natural flood management and water quality improvement.
Put your new strategy into action. At a landscape level, we enable protected landscapes and other large portfolio holders to work with landowners to deliver targeted nature recovery.
At a farm, farm cluster and estate level we work with landowners and their advisors to analyse threats to farm payments, and identify opportunities for natural capital payments, including biodiversity net gain, carbon sequestration, natural flood management and water quality.
We also identify and secure private and public sources of income to monetise outcomes.
Continuous improvement. Use holistic outcomes from the evidence and insight to better manage your land for agriculture and the environment, and improve the planning and delivery of data-driven targeted management.
Update the baseline. Our monitoring creates a dynamic ‘living map’, identifies and measures historic change, and re-evaluates and communicates future targets.
Immersive and interactive online dashboards provide engagement tools for sharing and promoting outcomes amongst visitors, partners, stakeholders and investors.
