Restoration methods and initiatives that will help us reach our goal

Ocean and marine ecosystem management

Restoring and protecting ocean and marine ecosystems through seaforestation (kelp planting), the reduction of plastic pollution, and supporting aquatic species protection.
Habitat enhancement
Restoring and protecting ecosystems through actions such as wildlife habitat recovery, habitat connectivity improvement‌ and biodiversity conservation.

Green land cover restoration

Restoring forest ecosystems through reforestation and afforestation, and engaging in ecosystem-based management for other vegetated areas such as wetlands and grasslands.

Biodiversity monitoring

Developing infrastructure and technology to support native biodiversity, monitor restoration progress‌ and consolidate data for action.

Working with nature, powered by technology

We are working on innovating with technology, including 5G capabilities, to advance our goal and enhance the benefits provided by restoration activities. Leveraging our partnerships and technology expertise, we explore how new and emerging technologies can support nature-based solutions and connect people to nature.

Following best-in class guidelines

In working towards our goal, we will be following established restoration frameworks developed by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and the World Resources Institute (WRI). 

Grounded in transparency and accountability, for each of our projects we work with key partners to define project needs, collect relevant data, monitor progress regularly and report findings openly.
