Nature4Climate and the MRV Collective are hosting a nature tech showcase event at NYCW, bringing together a range of start-up companies that are deploying the latest in advanced technologies to meet the world’s net zero and nature positive goals. Although a nascent sector, nature tech is witnessing a surge in interest – from financial institutions, corporate buyers, the venture capital market and impact investors.
Nature tech can be characterised in the following ways: technology that helps deploy NbS such as drones for reforestation; monitoring, reporting and verification (MRV) technologies such as satellite monitoring; technology that improves transparency such as blockchain for carbon transactions; and technology such as mobile apps and platforms that connect local communities to higher-paying markets for their products. These areas are evolving to address a wide range of environmental challenges including habitat destruction, deforestation, soil degradation, water pollution, and species loss. Nature tech’s ability to value and report on nature will greatly improve in the coming years, providing increasingly bankable benefits for those who protect, restore and manage natural systems, ecosystems and landscapes.
