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.

Nature-backed MERIT

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.

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.

Backed by investors

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.”

MERIT, currency of a green world

Join the MERIT community and take a step toward a green economy – a world in balance.  

With MERIT, we could give back to nature with each transaction, instead of only taking from it.

"It can be a little part of protecting the Amazon, rebuilding forests in Africa, and shifting the negative trend of land losing carbon — it is all I wish, really. I try to spend what I have in the most sensible way for the next and coming generations."
Hans Von Essen
"When I get the opportunity, I like to participate in cofounding projects that resonate with me. The way how Single.Earth is planning to develop their model is definitely in line with my values."
Mari-Liis Garcia
"I am really concerned about the future of our planet and the preservation of mother nature — this is why I stepped into the Single.Earth project as soon as I had the opportunity and acquired my first MERIT tokens on September 1st, 2022."
Anthony Dugas
"As Single.Earth has been rather active on (social) media, I had already heard about them months ago. The business model is novel and I am eager to follow the journey and intrigued to see what they'll do next."
