Financial & Policy Mechanisms

Have you thought about working with land owners and managers to provide new ways of delivering your objectives or to mitigate your future organisational risks and costs?

Over £13 billion is spent in England each year to protect and enhance the land and water environment for the benefit of people and wildlife. More effective allocation of this spending through smart governance and partnership could deliver tens of millions of pounds of efficiency gains

Are you looking for research that evidences upstream savings and environmental benefits available through appropriate investment in green infrastructure and rural land management?

We have experience of building trust with policy makers, regulators, farming organisations, NGOs, local authorities and businesses. We can help you develop financial models and new delivery mechanisms that bring about change in the natural economy to improve the environment and generate a cashable return for you.

We turn policy and theory into reality. We have helped public, private and third sector organisations create markets and take advantage of investments in green infrastructure and catchment management. As a result, we have helped create cost effective solutions using natural systems that:

  • generate economic activity;
  • mitigate flood risk;
  • reduce nutrient losses and wider sources of water pollution;
  • manage microplastic risks; and,
  • deliver social prescribing models to improve citizen’s health and wellbeing.

We can also help you turn pilot programmes into national operations. We have experience of identifying and developing:

  • Funding streams;
  • Action plans; and,
  • Stakeholder partnerships.

Contact one of our team if you would like to develop a financial or policy mechanism which brings about change in your catchment area or on the land you own.
