First Wetland Mitigation Project Financing listing on Mission Markets

Leave a comment

We are very pleased to announce our first Wetland Mitigation Project Financing listing.  Located in Skagit County, Washington State, the 396 acre wetland mitigation bank will offer an estimated 242 “general wetland credits” over the next ten years as the bank matures.  The restored wetlands will be typical of bottom-land floodplain systems that provide fish, water quality, storm water storage, wildlife, and hydraulic and floodplain process functions, and endangered species habitat.

The mission of the Skagit Environmental Bank Project is to create and preserve 396 acres of critical habitat processes and functions in a way that contributes to achieving a net gain of those values and strengthens the integrity of those ecosystems, while successfully achieving economic and social development and increasing human health and well-being for our generation and for generations to come.

Here at Mission Markets we are promoting conservation finance as an investible sector to socially responsible impact investors. Conservation projects like wetland mitigation banking not only offer potential above market returns but also produce tangible social and environmental benefits. Specifically, this project conserves wetlands and the wildlife, allowing these vital ecosystems to continue to provide a wide range of critical environmental services.

This project is listed on our Sustainable Impact Investing Platform (SIIP).  Accredited investors can gain access to this listing by registering at www.missionmarkets.com.
