Nature Markets Principles


The Wildlife Trusts, RSPB, Woodland Trust, National Trust, Finance Earth and Federated Hermes (a responsible investment management company) have co-developed these voluntary principles for science-based investment, to support high integrity natural capital markets in the UK. Finance Earth, in partnership with Federated Hermes, will manage the Government-backed UK Nature Impact Fund that aims to stimulate institutional investment at scale in high quality nature restoration projects across the UK. The UK Nature Impact Fund intends to adopt the Nature Markets Principles and apply them across all of its activities in UK nature markets.
