Focus Areas

Bloom Labs produces cutting-edge open-source research and resources on scaling biodiversity finance.

Biodiversity markets

Voluntary and compliance markets based on biodiversity credits. Everything about credit schemes, their quantification methods & market developments.

Nature accounting

Integration of biodiversity and ecosystems into corporate accounting & strategy. Focused on nature-related disclosure frameworks (e.g. TNFD, SBTN, CSRD).

Biodiversity MRV

Biodiversity quantification in order to monitor, report and verify (MRV) it. Especially focused on how biodiversity data collected relates to biodiversity credit mechanisms.

Why Biodiversity

Biodiversity is not only a magical interwoven circle of life. Our society is built on it. If we dig deep enough, every product or service finds its origins there. We're slowly realizing that. Large-scale political and financial commitments have been made to preserve and restore these natural ecosystems.

UN-level agreement to conserve 30% of terrestrial and marine habitat by 2030.
30 by 30
Pledged biodiversity-related financial assistance from developed countries to developing ones.
$30 billion by 2030
Assets under management of financial institutions that have made commitments about biodiversity loss.
$24 trillion

We’re at a crucial point of starting to systematically value intact nature (above $0, that is). There are many promising solutions: nature-focused corporate regulations, fair market mechanisms (e.g. biodiversity or carbon credits), nature monitoring tech. How we will achieve that will dictate our future. Finding a balance between capitalistic, regulatory and societal solutions will be key.

A lot of unique unbiased market research and synthesis needs to be done to move the space forward. That’s where Bloom Labs come in.

What started as a way to share my learnings part-time while exploring to build a nature tech company, became the thing I became most known for. So I decided to double down.

Let's scale biodiversity finance together.

One way or another, biodiversity will be valued. Let us help you get ahead of the curve.
