Nature Markets Principles

What are the the Nature Markets Principles?

Wildlife Trusts across the UK have been instrumental in the development of various “nature markets”, including carbon, biodiversity credits, nutrient neutrality and natural flood management, delivering multiple benefits for society and the environment and new income streams for rural communities. The aim of Nature Market Principles is to encourage responsible private investment in nature recovery. Contact our business relationships team today to find out more.

 Nature Markets Principles, has been developed with Finance Earth and Federated Hermes.

These principles send a firm message from some of the UK’s top deliverers of nature-based solutions that we will only engage with the highest integrity schemes. Buyers must stand up to scrutiny and truly contribute to nature’s recovery in the UK, while benefiting local communities. We welcome the business community and others working in this space to join us in upholding these principles.”
