Go beyond offsetting

Single.Earth tokenizes nature for its ecological value and essential ecosystem services, capturing their merit in MERIT tokens. To enable tokenization and monitoring of nature (carbon sequestration, biodiversity, and carbon stocks), Single.Earth's in-house research and science team created a Digital Twin of the entire Earth.

For businesses, Single.Earth offers a simple, efficient, and credible way to tackle both climate change and biodiversity loss. With your contribution, forests will continue to remove and store carbon, hold biodiversity, and provide vital ecosystem services that make the planet habitable.

Receive a certificate of contribution

By supporting the preservation of biodiverse forests under high risk of destruction, your company will make a measurable contribution toward Sustainable Development Goals 13 and 15.

SDG 13: Climate action to take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts.

SDG 15: Life on land to protect, restore and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, halt and reverse land degradation, and halt biodiversity loss.

You’ll receive a Contribution Certificate with the number of hectares supported over a year in a specific area and describes the environmental characteristics (Biodiversity Intactness Index, vulnerable or threatened species, and average annual carbon flux) of the forest plot.

Santa Natalia in Amazon Brazil

The Santa Natalia rainforest is immensely biodiverse, providing habitat for 175 species and removing more than 104,000 tons of CO₂ from the atmosphere every year.

The Arc of Deforestation

You can help protect the lungs of Earth. The 47,832 hectares of Santa Natalia is located in the Arc of Deforestation – the area with the most rapid deforestation in the world. The owners of the land want to protect the rainforest from being cut.

How the contribution works

Landowners join Single.Earth

Single.Earth works with landowners, managers, and organizations who commit to preserving nature. Instead of harvesting and destroying healthy ecosystems, landowners get a regular financial support for allowing their forests to grow.

Digital Twin evaluates and monitors lands

Our science team uses satellite data, geospatial engineering, and machine learning to represent nature with a Global Digital Twin. The model allows us to automatically assess each plot of land for its forest coverage, biodiversity, and carbon sequestration.

Nature-backed MERIT tokens are issued

Based on ecological values, tokens are issued to landowners as long as the forest stays intact. Using blockchain technology, we can connect money with nature and create MERIT. If we detect unreconciled clearcutting or land conversion, we cease minting.

MERIT Contribution platform for businesses

Businesses can use MERIT to make a nature-positive contribution by “burning” tokens and receiving a Contribution Certificate in return. It's also possible to buy MERIT as a virtual asset to trade and use in the future. Both business contributors and token holders contribute to building the world’s first nature-backed economy that values living nature.

Sandra Malmberg, Principal at EQT Ventures

“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.”
