What is LENs?

LENs, or Landscape Enterprise Networks, is a system for organising the buying and selling of nature-based solutions. Nature-based solutions are land management measures that deliver ecosystem functions, such as water quality management, flood risk management, resilient supply of crops, carbon, or biodiversity outcomes.

LENs systematically brings a diversity of private and public-sector organisations together around a common interest in funding nature-based solutions within a given geography. LENs then brokers negotiations, and eventually transactions, between these buyers and groups of landowners who are in a position to deliver them on the ground.

It’s a new but proven system, with millions of pounds worth of live transactions set to repeat and grow in our most advanced trading locations.
