A hub dedicated to Impact

In order to increase our impact on ecosystem regeneration, we developed a department dedicated to developing an ambitious IT system in 2021, which integrates impact forecasting models and which collects and aggregates field and scientific data to connect project owners, funders and technological partners. Our goal is to develop an innovative solution to exponentially increase large-scale projects, optimizing their impacts to better guarantee ecosystems’ sustainability over time, and to promote project financing by delivering reliable and transparent data.

Provide a regeneration index

Propose a holistic approach to impact measurement by aggregating indicators from 4 pillars: climate, biodiversity, soil and societal/economic benefits.

Optimize ecosystem sustainability

Ensure impact monitoring and measurement for all 4 pillars (basis for ecosystem sustainability) and, in real time, for over 30 years to allow for adaptive project management, if necessary.

Measuring return on investment

Provide investors with a measurement of their contribution’s impact so they can then demonstrate and develop value creation.

Providing traceability and transparency

Collect data over time and store it using blockchain technology for more transparency, accurate reporting and trust.

Impact forecasting methodologies

For each project, a set of indicators is defined to represent its impacts on each of the pillars (climate, biodiversity, soil, social & economic) as well as the protocols used for forecasting and measuring these indicators.

The methodologies are based on mathematical models and scientific literature and data. They aim to:

  • evaluate the quality of the project design, considering the project’s context and the project leader’s needs and capabilities.
  • allow for, if necessary, suggesting improvements for project designs.
  • monitor and correlate forecasts with actual measurements of these impacts over time.

Technology for ecosystem regeneration

Innovative monitoring tools

Deploying and combining field data collection and remote sensing tools allows us to optimize our monitoring processes through increased monitoring and reliability and to ensure effective long-term impact measurement.

With this in mind, we have equipped our project leaders with a mobile app that collects field data reliably when a project is being deployed (from 1 to 5 years), which is essential for implementing adaptive management when needed. Then, an automatic monitoring by satellite imagery analysis (from 6 to 30 years) makes it possible to check the number of trees, their growth and carbon sequestration over a long time period. Remote monitoring also provides contextual information such as deforestation alerts.

Our data-focused approach


We can collect a large amount of reliable data that, in the long-term, we can use to model approaches in terms of ecosystem regeneration by implementing these tools. The aggregation and analysis of this data must be a valuable source of information for ecosystem progress and a means of going even further to optimize the regenerative nature of our projects over time while contributing to the transformation of companies' value chains with reliable data.
