Rewilding your way to Nature Positive
Restoring and regenerating habitats is one way the team at Nature Positive can help with mitigating the biodiversity impacts from your organisation. A focus on restoring habitats and enhancing biodiversity brings many benefits, including improved air and water quality, reduced flood risk and the sequestering of carbon. Rewilding can help to rectify your business’s effects on the environment (spoiler: it is not all about wolves).
Nature Positive uses a variety of methods to help organisations understand their impacts and reliance on nature. Biodiversity footprints can be used to help identify where your business interacts with the natural world and, by reducing your footprint, to deliver better outcomes for nature.
Rewilding can be used to offset your biodiversity footprint, as restoring and regenerating habitats help ecosystem services recover, giving benefits for climate, flood management and human wellbeing. Your business might be trying to achieve biodiversity or environmental net gain; we can apply a range of metrics to determine the ecosystem services used by your business to make sure you are returning a net benefit to the planet. In any offsetting scheme, the Nature Positive team uses its extensive practical knowledge of conservation to help deliver the best outcomes, both for you and for nature.
Our sister company, RSK Wilding, has created a fantastic report outlining ten ways rewilding can beat the climate crisis, illustrated with project examples. These include greening our cities, cleaning up our rivers and wetlands and restoring damaged peatlands. Rewilding can help restore ecosystem services and help protect us from the worst effects of climate change. Read the report to find out more.
