Nature conservation is expensive. It’s missing more than $100 billion each year. Single.Earth provides an innovative finance mechanism to protect species, habitats, and landscapes. Let’s help local communities maintain conservation as land use.
A forest is a business, an investment. We get that. Single.Earth makes nature protection financially rewarding – become a proud innovator and start practising sustainable forestry. Earn passive income for allowing your trees to grow.
To many, our lands and forests are home, nurturing our families and souls. They might be small but the impact they make together, is huge. Use Single.Earth to get the financial support to take care of your family legacy.
Protecting existing biodiverse forests and allowing them to grow into their full ecological potential is one of the most immediate and cost-effective solutions to bend the curves of biodiversity loss and climate change.
Single.Earth incentivizes landowners to manage their forests to maximize ecosystem services, including carbon sequestration, biodiversity, and other benefits consistent with nature-based solutions. Rather than prioritizing commercial timber harvesting, we propose shifting how we view forests and their economic value by valuing intact natural lands.
We aim to expand to wetlands, grasslands, and other natural resources in the coming years.
Create an account and enter your lands to get a free preliminary assessment of their potential. Exploring the platform is available and free of charge for all landowners. No initial commitment required.
When ready to continue, please verify your account and submit your application to determine if your land is eligible to join Single.Earth today. Today, official onboarding is available for lands in the European Economic Area (EEA) with at least 3 hectares of mature forest. Other applications will be waitlisted for future opportunities.
After completing the verification and official assessment processes, Single.Earth begins issuing MERIT tokens to the landowner's digital wallet. Instead of one-time payments, landowners receive regular income by selling continuously issued tokens. All actions are done via the simple and secure Single.Earth platform.
MERIT tokens are only issued to the landowner as long as the forest stays intact and is managed sustainably according to the responsible harvesting practices set out by Single.Earth. If we detect unreconciled clearcutting or land conversion, we cease minting MERIT tokens.
Single.Earth has an ecological sciences and data science team of 20+ people developing and operating scientific Digital Twin models used for the assessment and monitoring of the ecological features of the lands onboarded to Single.Earth. Based on these, we create a digital model for each land that acts as the oracle of the MERIT minting mechanism.
During official assessment, we also perform a risk and impact assessment of the lands, allowing us to identify, prioritize, and onboard ecologically valuable forests under high risk of destruction.
