Investing in Nature: Transforming Risk into Resilience

5X to 100X returns ensuring the value of natural capital

Brands, industries, and businesses are facing unprecedented challenges from climate change to biodiversity loss and the social upheaval surrounding it. These challenges threaten not just the environment but also the bottom line.

Yet, what if there was a way to not only mitigate these risks but turn them into a competitive advantage? The BASIN Protocol does this: move the cost of nature-related risk to a forward thinking investment in the benefits that nature provides.

Would you make👇 investment?

Imagine investing $85,000 and unlocking $1,449,703 of annual natural capital value and all the brand cred that comes with it. This isn’t a hypothetical scenario but a reality through the lens of our 83-acre wetland in the Southeast Savannas & Riparian Bioregion.

$1.45M of Annual Natural Capital Value

This opportunity is a testament to the fact that the value of intact ecosystems far exceeds the cost of preserving them, offering clean air, abundant water, climate stability, and much more.

The RealValue of Natural Capital

Our RealValue framework, grounded in hundreds of leading studies, quantifies the annual benefits of natural capital in relation to the underlying real asset cost. From clean air and water to habitat and recreation, the diverse benefits of natural capital are immense.

For example, our 83-acre wetland property showcases a staggering annual RealValue of $1.45M, from 18 Core Benefits, illustrating the vast potential of investing in ecosystems.

Transforming Liabilities into Assets

Consider the commercial real estate sector (hotels, apartments, office, manufacturing, retail, etc), where factors like clean water, soil health, and risk resilience are crucial. Or the apparel industry, dependent on clean air, water, and climate stability. These dependencies aren’t mere risks but opportunities when approached through the lens of natural capital investment. The BASIN approach transforms environmental and social liabilities into valuable assets, ensuring not only your business but bioregional health and well being at the same time.

Don't Drain the Swamp! It is too valuable!

The Cost vs. Value Proposition

Price is what you pay. Value is what you get.” - Warren Buffet

The relational value gap between cost and value in natural capital investment is, frankly, a generational opportunity. For a fraction of the RealValue, businesses and investors can secure and protect the ecosystem services that bolster their operations and resilience.

With an investment as low as $13,375 per year, you could tap into $1.45 million worth of natural capital benefits, marking a 99% discount and a 108X impact multiple. It’s an investment in future-proofing your business while safeguarding the planet.
