Generating, measuring and monetising natural capital for our clients

What is Natural Capital?

Natural capital comprises Earth’s natural assets (soil, air, water, flora and fauna) and the ecosystem services resulting from them, which make human life possible.

Why is Natural Capital important?

Building and preserving natural capital can improve landscape resilience and reduce the impacts of climate change through the storing of carbon from the atmosphere.

Ecosystems

Building and preserving natural capital through regenerative agriculture

Impact Ag Partners work together with partners and clients to preserve and enhance natural capital in the Australian landscape and create long-term investment value.

Regenerative agriculture that builds and preserves natural capital can deliver stable investment returns while improving climate resilience and storing carbon in the landscape.


How we montetise Natural Capital

Through the use of innovative strategies, market maturity and the utilisation of new technologies, natural capital is improving agricultural returns and driving sectoral change.

Measuring and reporting on outcomes such as biodiversity and habitat restoration unlocks revenue streams from funds to build natural capital.
