WE VALUE

To enable funds to flow into landscape scale restoration projects, we must prove impact and measure the value of ecosystem restoration in financial terms, and make a solid business case for cleaner air, cleaner water and environmental resiliency.

ECOMETRICS™ Model

Our EcoMetrics™ Model uses in-depth analytics to measure the full value for each environmental, social and economic outcome produced by ecosystem restoration, and reports on those outcomes in monetary terms.

Watch the video to learn more about why our partners love the EcoMetrics™ Model.

We can create $168.3m of integrated value from an initial investment of $5m. Our model enables business leaders to account for and communicate the full monetary value of their natural capital investments in terms of financial, social, and environmental benefits in a transparent and verifiable way.

Restore the Earth provides a formal report to funders in a format ready for third party audit and accounts for intangible assets on the funder’s balance sheet to support the business case for investment. This also allows funders to take credit for GHG offsets, water quality offsets and other environmental benefits produced, in perpetuity; and if desired, they can use the environmental offsets to mitigate the portion of their climate footprint that cannot be offset at source.

The EcoMetrics™ Model is compliant with global standards for ecosystem services, and aligned with:

  • Social Value International

  • International Integrated Reporting Council’s Framework

  • IFC Performance Standards on Environment & Social Sustainability

  • Winrock International & ACR Protocols & Methodology

*Adjusted for the loss of economic value. Restoration Value generated over 40 years.

ECOMETRICS™ Model

FINANCIAL

Financial capital created by multiple offset credits, revenue from sustainable timber harvests, hunting licenses and sale of restored land to conservation organizations.

SOCIAL AND RELATIONSHIP

Recreational activities in restored environments such as hunting, fishing and wildlife viewing all create social and relationship capital.

MANUFACTURED

Natural storm protection and waste treatment systems create valuable manufactured capital in the form of green infrastructure.

HUMAN

Jobs directly created by the restoration program and indirectly in the restored environment create long-term human capital.

NATURAL

Vast natural capital created from clean air to clean water, stable productive soils, enhanced biodiversity, green house gas and nutrient retention.

INTELLECTUAL

Restoring landscapes creates and expands knowledge, competencies and capabilities and maintains experiences that build valuable intellectual capital.
