You depend on  a healthy planet

Ecosystem collapse – that’s what we gamble with every day. Science confirms that humans have crossed the safe operating limits for a livable Earth. Despite global climate agreements, we’re still on a path toward an irreversible climate and biodiversity crisis.

Save nature with MERIT tokens

MERIT gives everyone a simple yet effective way to protect the natural world. It’s an innovative virtual currency that represents and protects (!) the work nature does to make the planet habitable.

1 MERIT = 100 kg of CO₂ captured in biodiverse nature

How it works

Single.Earth is a virtual ecosystem where landowners, people, and businesses come together to save nature.
Mountain aligned left
Landowners join Single.Earth
Single.Earth partners with landowners, managers, and organizations who commit to preserving nature. Instead of destroying healthy ecosystems, landowners get a regular income for taking good care of their land.

Digital Twin monitors and evaluates lands
Our science team uses satellite data, geospatial engineering, and machine learning to represent nature with a global Digital Twin. The model automatically assesses each plot of land for its forest coverage, biodiversity, and carbon sequestration.

Nature-backed MERIT is created
Based on ecological values, tokens are issued to landowners for as long as the forest stays intact. If we detect unreconciled clearcutting or land conversion, we cease minting. Using blockchain technology, we can connect money with nature and create MERIT.
Marketplace
Buy, contribute, spend, and trade MERIT
Individuals and businesses can buy MERIT as 1) a direct nature-positive contribution toward climate goals or 2) a virtual asset to trade, spend, and more. Everything you can do with money today, you can do with MERIT in the future.

Save rainforests in Amazon Brazil

Santa Natalia is located in the Arc of Deforestation – the area with the most rapid deforestation in the world. The forest is immensely biodiverse, providing habitat for 175 species and removing more than 104,000 tons of CO₂ from the atmosphere every year.

Protect threatened forests in Europe

Smaller lands have extremely limited options to earn income for nature preservation. We work with landowners across Europe who commit to keeping their forests intact. Our goal is to make nature protection easy and profitable for lands of all sizes.

Support large conservation areas

Nature conservation is missing more than $100 billion each year. There’s an urgent need to increase protected areas globally and also find sustainable revenue sources for managing these areas. We are partnering with local communities and conservation organisations to sustainably protect species, habitats, and landscapes.

Sandra Malmberg, Principal at EQT Ventures

“Forests are the foundation of life, but they are increasingly under threat from deforestation and forest degradation. We need to give nature an inherent value for being kept as it is. Single.Earth is doing exactly that by rewarding landowners to preserve the ecosystem that keeps us alive while offering companies and individuals the opportunity to compensate and contribute by buying MERIT tokens. An exciting new approach.”

Ragnar Sass, Co-Founder of Pipedrive & Salto

“Forests are one of the most important ecosystems on this planet. We all depend on biodiverse forests and we all must step up to protect them. Single.Earth is by far the easiest and most reliable way of doing it.”

Martin Henk, Co-Founder of Pipedrive and Eventornado

“Climate change is real, it’s already here and it’s not good. One of the ways we keep making it worse is cutting down forests. Many people simply don’t have a choice. They need to make an income and the alternatives to cutting have been non-existent, too complicated or not accessible to most. Until now. The amazing team at Single.Earth is building a viable alternative by which people can make money and save the planet at the same time. If that isn’t a win-win situation I don’t know what is.”
