Ecological assets, or eco-assets, are commanding real monetary value and have become an increasingly important part of financial and business calculations for private landowners, businesses and industry, municipalities, and government agencies. The market is advancing as we attempt to stem the negative impacts on ecosystem services that are critical to our quality of life.

EASI offers advice, products, and services that help clients understand, navigate, and benefit from the expanding market for eco-assets, in particular mitigation credits. The term ‘mitigation credits’ includes wetland and stream credits as well as conservation credits (aka habitat and species credits). We estimate the U.S. compensatory mitigation credit market is currently worth $100 billion with $1.5 billion in annual transactions.

EASI enables clients to develop new revenue streams, reduce project risks and achieve important public interest goals related to sustainability, health & welfare and economic vitality. Here are some of the ways we can help.
