Using our WILDnCAT Forecasting tool

We have developed a class leading proprietorial software tool that can be used by portfolio land and asset managers to assess any small or large landscapes for nature recovery’s financial viability. The software includes all the latest up to date natural capital and commercial income streams that can forecast long term monetary yields, allowing you to make valued judgments on nature positive land use changes and potential investments, both now – and long into the future.  It can even be used for pre- acquisition assessments.

Contact us to know more.

To justify your commercial objectives, your ESG needs, your Carbon Net Zero commitments and your Biodiversity impacts, or for sustainable investments in nature-based solutions (NBS), you need to:

  • Assess and risks and returns of long-term investment with annual yields, IRR and CAGR forecasting
  • Long range forecasting against the prevailing and emerging national regulatory frameworks and emerging natural capital, carbon and biodiversity credit markets
