About our project
PROJECT TITLE: Scaling Up Natural Capital Investment
LOCATION: Chat Moss, Salford
FUNDING: Awarded £100,000 from the Natural Environment Investment Readiness Fund
Stimulating investment into our valuable peatland habitats.
The funding will help us to implement the financing models that have been developed to attract Carbon and Biodiversity Net Gain income. Our Scaling Up Natural Capital Investment project will enable us to carry out further research, establish the verification procedures, and test out the models to prove we can lever in private investment into our Greater Manchester habitats with a target of securing £2million by August 2022.
Once tested, we can start to roll out the finance models long-term to realise Greater Manchester’s Local Nature Recovery Strategy.
