The Natural Capital Marketplace is a Biosphere Foundation CIC product made possible with financial support from the Environment Agency. HM Government, South West Water, Siemens and Devon District Council. As a not-for-profit CIC linked to the UNESCO North Devon World Biosphere, our aim is to address the climate emergency, enable nature recovery and stimulate sustainable economic development locally, regionally and nationally.
The Natural Capital Marketplace’s mission is to join the dots and accelerate the scale of natural capital improvement projects across the UK. We do this by providing landholders with custom-matched projects that they can choose that align with their objectives for their land. These projects can be implemented by the landholder or more typically in partnership with one of our verified delivery partners. Projects can be funded in a range of ways, and these options are clearly laid out (and always looking to optimize grant funding and DEFRA support).
The natural capital outcomes from these projects (for example carbon credits or habitat improve) are then certified against third party standards (e.g., the woodland carbon code) and are then sold to councils. water companies and corporate customers that have committed to a pre 2050 net-zero carbon target.
