At Eco System Services Limited (ESS) we draw upon our extensive experience in capital markets and environmental investment to develop workable business models for large-scale sustainable land-use projects. Our focus is in emerging economies, with a particular interest in tropical forest nations.

We believe that the key to protecting the natural capital and eco-system services of forests, wetlands, and other habitats lies in fostering sustainable economic opportunities in regions where degradation is occurring. Unless conservation strategies are seen to deliver higher living standards they are likely to fail in the long-term. In practice this will require investment in areas such as renewable energy, planted forests, sustainable forest management, and improved agriculture.
