Conservation Credit Platform Launched for UK’s Environment Bank

Leave a comment

In February, Mission Markets, in conjunction with The Environment Bank, the first organization in the UK to deliver ‘mitigation and compensation’ schemes associated with planned development, proudly launched the first online platform in the UK for conservation credits.  This platform allows farmers, landowners, and conservationists to register their wildlife sites as conservation credits, which developers can purchase to offset their biodiversity impact. This process develops long-term conservation protection by placing a transferable value on biodiversity loss and establishing private sector funding for the management of conservation sites.
