GreenVest’s core business is developing compensatory mitigation, providing our clients with an efficient and cost effective option to satisfy mitigation based requirements. Mitigation requirements vary from state to state but typically include wetlands, wetland buffers, open water, stream, riparian buffer, nutrient reductions/offsets (nitrogen/phosphorous), critical wildlife habitat, threatened and endangered species habitat and forest. GreenVest develops this compensatory mitigation by restoring or enhancing degraded or impaired ecological systems, thus creating “ecological lift” that translates into “ecological assets”. The ecological lift that results from our restoration projects yields ecological assets in the form of salable “mitigation bank credits” or “turnkey mitigation”. We provide an in depth discussion clarifying the differences between these two approaches in our Turnkey versus Mitigation Bank primer PDF.
Our restoration practice focuses on underutilized, ecologically/environmentally constrained and/or non-performing land-based assets. The type of land we seek can range from wet, unproductive farmland to constrained vacant land to unused or constrained acreage adjacent to existing development.
GreenVest operates chiefly in the mid-Atlantic region and is intimately familiar with state and the federal requirements for compensatory mitigation. Let our expertise and experience guide you or your firm to the most efficient and cost effective method of satisfying compensatory mitigation requirements. Allow GV to provide the mitigation for you assuming 100% of the risk and liability while providing cost and timeline certainty.
