WE ARE IMPACT-DRIVEN
Let’s not measure our success only in units of carbon. Instead, let’s ensure that the benefits for people and for nature are hardwired into the currency of carbon, so that we can use the carbon market to deliver solutions to many of the other pressing issues we face.

Our leading standards and impact reporting framework ensures that the carbon projects we represent deliver transformative positive outcomes, with high-integrity project design and governance at their core.
But carbon is not our end game.
The Ecosphere+ platform delivers impact for:
The fight to mitigate climate change is urgent, and action now convenes around the carbon market to accelerate an imminent and large-scale response. And although carbon can be used to deliver solutions to many of the other pressing issues we face, carbon is only one piece of the puzzle. Markets must also develop to value nature’s assets that are in need of finance, such as biodiversity and other ecosystem services.
This is where nature finance comes in. We recognise there is a lot of work ahead to restore our planet, and with an ever-growing number of innovative solutions, we’re working to build not only the market for climate finance, but for nature finance as well.
Insetting is a way for companies to harmonise their operations with the ecosystems they depend upon and transition to a more sustainable business model through purchasing carbon credits from landscapes within their supply chain. According to the International Platform for Insetting (IPI), through insetting, “Businesses reduce the GHG emissions of their operations, increasing carbon sequestration by re-establishing natural carbon sinks, increasing soil health, restoring local water cycles and reversing the loss of forests and biodiversity. At the same time they build climate resilience, support the livelihoods of local producers and strengthen communities.”
Ecosphere+ works closely with businesses to support insetting in key regions and supply chains across the world. To date, we’ve supported some of the world’s biggest brands to transition to a landscape approach and to consider insetting as a means of delivering widespread positive impact.
The Ecosphere+ team hold positions on multiple professional member organisations for the voluntary carbon market and sustainable business.
