Science-backed innovation

Single.Earth is on a quest to help preserve existing biodiverse ecosystems and rebalance the planet. Our immediate goal is to increase the conserved area of threatened mature forests globally by making forest preservation an economically viable alternative to harvesting and deforestation.

We use methods based on big data and AI to evaluate and quantify forest attributes and give input for developing a new green currency we call MERIT, linking nature with the economy.

Digital Twin for assessing lands

Single.Earth's Digital Twin allows us to virtually represent and monitor intact forest areas along with ecological features starting with the gross CO₂ removal capacity of each land onboarded to our platform. Thanks to this, we can offer credible and efficient land assessments to lands of all sizes worldwide.

Carbon methodology

We use in-house tools and peer-reviewed methods to map global forest carbon fluxes, forest loss, and canopy cover to value forests as digital assets. This allows us to generate economic incentives for landowners to manage their forests and protect nature.

Ecosystem integrity methodology

Single.Earth’s Ecosystem Integrity Index (EII) is an innovative approach to account for other aspects of nature beyond carbon. The EII helps to assess and quantify ecosystem health, completeness, and resiliency to natural and human-induced disturbances.

Upcoming research and expansion

Single.Earth will further explore, expand, and modify our data collection to other types of ecosystems such as terrestrial ecosystems (e.g., peatlands, grasslands, croplands, etc.), transitional ecosystems including wetlands and intertidal zones, and coastal ecosystems (e.g., coastal wetlands, mangroves,etc.).
