The clean energy revolution must deliver for nature too
With global energy demand set to increase 30% by 2040, mitigating biodiversity impacts has never been more important.
Environmental DNA (eDNA) provides biodiversity data in unprecedented detail to inform robust decision-making. Feeding into all stages of the mitigation hierarchy, this helps track progress towards goals such as Net Positive Impact or No Net Loss of biodiversity and ensure the best outcomes for nature. Samples collected by non-specialist on-site personnel enable cost-efficient year-round monitoring.
Use our aquatic eDNA kits to detect and monitor rare, endangered and invasive species in rivers, lakes and oceans. Data can also highlight ecosystem effects including loss of connectivity in rivers and the effectiveness of mitigation solutions such as fish passes.
Unlock insights from insect and soil communities to track impacts in terrestrial habitats.
