What are biodiversity credits?

Biodiversity credits provide a financial mechanism to incentivise and support conservation initiatives, creating a market-based approach to funding and valuing biodiversity protection and restoration efforts. In today's rapidly changing world, businesses face many challenges, including resource scarcity and evolving consumer demands. Biodiversity credits offer a transformative approach to address these challenges and unlock new opportunities for your business.

A new economic instrument

Biodiversity credits enable the trading and monetising of biodiversity and ecosystem services to incentivise the conservation and restoration of nature and ecosystems.

Biodiversity is vital and valuable

Biodiversity and ecosystem services' importance cannot be overstated. They are crucial for human wellbeing, enhance production systems, and create value for businesses. 

Biodiversity is essential for life and the long-term future of businesses

By actively engaging in biodiversity credit initiatives, your company can make a tangible positive impact on the planet while simultaneously enhancing your brand image and long-term sustainability goals.

How do projects get verified?

As the largest Dutch project developer of nature-based solutions, DGB offers attractive long-term returns through a combination of our extensive expertise and the robust underlying characteristics of our assets. Our premium-quality carbon projects are all independently verified by Verra. 


Pre-feasibility & feasibility studies

In this phase, we assess a potential carbon project's feasibility by analyzing its environmental impact, technology needs, and financial viability.


Project design & validation

We create a detailed project blueprint with carbon reduction/sequestration strategies and goals, and validate it against established carbon standards/protocols.


Project development & certification

This phase implements and monitors the project, then obtains certification to ensure it meets carbon reduction and sustainability standards.


Under management

We monitor and adjust the project to maintain its sustainability and carbon reduction objectives throughout its lifetime.

What benefits does biodiversity offer?

Benefits of biodiversity credits

Investments in biodiversity projects offer long-term financial sustainability through the utilisation of scale economies, catering to individuals, businesses, and governments. These projects promote the centralisation of efforts, emphasising double-track gains and biodiversity indicators. 

Investing in biodiversity projects now offers a sustainable and profitable future. With the introduction of biodiversity credits, you can measure the positive impact of your investment on the preservation, restoration, and sustainable management of land. Not only will this enhance your business' value, but it also generates tangible benefits for the surrounding communities and land.
