CONNECTING NATURE WITH THE ECONOMY

Why use MERIT

The MERIT currency is the basis of a truly sustainable nature-backed economy. Because MERITs are only issued when carbon is captured, the amount of MERITs in circulation is always capped by how much of it nature can capture. This limits our greenhouse gas emissions and raw material use to how much the ecosystem can take.

THE FUTURE

It could be fertile ground, given the global carbon-offset market is expected to grow to $200 billion by 2050, from 600 million in 2019, according to Berenberg forecasts.

Instead of linking carbon and biodiversity credits to the sale of raw materials such as forests, which cause CO2, what if you linked them to crypto tokens, and thus kept these CO2-producing materials in the ground?

Everyone wants to get paid for doing nothing. Novel venture capital group MERIT has found just the right way for property owners to do exactly that.
