Natural England “Delivering nature’s services”
We can provide support to those wishing to explore how they can manage their natural resources in a more sustainable manner and maximise the value that such approaches can provide. We can carry our baseline audits of your natural resources and explore potential markets and payments systems.
We work closely with land owners to enable them to understand the importance of ecosystems and the services they provide, and thereby creating linkages with those who could directly benefit from such services. By linking up ecosystem providers and potential beneficiaries we can provide better outcomes for the natural environment, society and the economy.
As sustainability experts involved in policy and practice, we are fully aware of the wider services that our ecosystems bring to enhancing our wellbeing and contributing to economic prosperity.
Our experiences match that of environmental policy makers and government authorities in that we have seen the loss and degradation of valuable ecosystems and species over time.
There is increasing interest in recognising the value of the natural environment and the wide range of services it provides, including providing us with food, clean water, healthy soils, carbon storage, nutrient cycling and more intangible benefits such as recreational and cultural services.
Because we work across a wide spectrum of rural businesses, land owners and developers we are in a unique position to identify opportunities within our projects to maximise resource efficiencies and resilience.
