Single.Earth was founded to tackle one of the most critical challenges facing humankind: the destruction of ecosystems that support life.
Until now, nature has been monetized primarily as raw material. While healthy ecosystems have an enormous existential value, they have little value in the modern extractive economy, ultimately leading to the depletion of nature and natural resources on our finite planet.
What if nature could also be valued for its vital contributions to people, like clean air and climate regulation? Single.Earth aims to shift the current paradigm and incentivize landowners to protect the ecosystems that make this planet habitable.

“Forests are the foundation of life, but they are increasingly under threat from deforestation and forest degradation. We need to give nature an inherent value for being kept as it is. Single.Earth is doing exactly that by rewarding landowners to preserve the ecosystem that keeps us alive while offering companies and individuals the opportunity to compensate and contribute by buying MERIT tokens. An exciting new approach.”
Ragnar Sass, Co-Founder of Pipedrive & Salto
“Forests are one of the most important ecosystems on this planet. We all depend on biodiverse forests and we all must step up to protect them. Single.Earth is by far the easiest and most reliable way of doing it.”
Martin Henk, Co-Founder of Pipedrive and Eventornado
“Climate change is real, it’s already here and it’s not good. One of the ways we keep making it worse is cutting down forests. Many people simply don’t have a choice. They need to make an income and the alternatives to cutting have been non-existent, too complicated or not accessible to most. Until now. The amazing team at Single.Earth is building a viable alternative by which people can make money and save the planet at the same time. If that isn’t a win-win situation I don’t know what is.”
