Environmental Incentives

They are environmental thought leaders pioneering a new wave of conservation, helping people get the most from their investments in the environment. Since their establishment in 2004, they have become a leading adviser on natural resource programs and policies across the country and internationally. Environmental Incentives is a small but growing consulting firm with four offices across the US. Mission Their mission is to enhance the environmental systems that sustain healthy communities. They empower public and private sector leaders to maximize their effectiveness using Performance-Driven Conservation tools and practices. Guiding Principles Improve the Environment They focus their actions to improve the environmental systems that support healthy communities. Open and Honest Communication They build on areas of consensus, address challenges and acknowledge uncomfortable truths. They believe honest feedback makes them, their clients and their communities of practice more effective. Create Enduring Change They facilitate behavior change by: aligning social, economic and environmental objectives, and developing tools and practices that alter the basis for decision-making. They create tailored solutions that work for their partners and their communities. PRACTICE AREAS - Water - Wildlife & Land - International Conservation Their programs align the incentives of individual actors with community and environmental objectives using the following: - Aspirational yet achievable GOALS that inspire action - CREDITS or METRICS that link individual actions to regional goals - INCENTIVES to maximize benefits and minimize impacts - Meaningful environmental accounting and transparent REPORTING of results - Systematic LEARNING and ADAPTIVE MANAGEMENT When combining these features, they use information as the anchor to improve effectiveness and inspire confidence that environmental initiatives are improving ecosystem services and increasing community resilience. Performance driven conservation programs enable economic incentives to maximize the benefit of public funds and create opportunities for conservation finance investments. Regulatory programs employ Performance Driven Conservation to demonstrate that mitigation programs are achieving durable net benefits for unavoidable impacts, and that pollutant reductions are on track to meet water quality goals. They support their public, non-profit, foundation and private sector clients and partners in applying Performance Driven Conservation in each of their three practice areas: Water, Wildlife and Land, and International Conservation.
