We exceeded our goals, detecting hundreds of additional vertebrate species. Without eDNA and NatureMetrics, we would have been relegated to visual surveys, requiring more field time, and to opportunistic interviews for the other five target species, which are less reliable, auditable, and systematic. The hundreds of other species detections would not have been possible at all.

WWF

eDNA has got huge applicability. If we think about early on in the discovery and exploration phase,where our knowledge is limited about the potential biodiversity risk in the area that we might be looking to explore, it’s a critical component to that.

Traditional ecology often capture insufficient data. In contrast, eDNA has facilitated a much better understanding, especially in the case of large deep rivers, allowing for a more comprehensive grasp of the impacts on ecological communities. As a result, appropriate mitigation measures can be implemented

SMEC

eDNA provides wider ecological datasets that provide us with a tool not only to mitigate any potential impacts from developments but also to evidence the positive ecological impacts that can arise from offshore wind farms in a way we have not been able to do before due to traditional survey method constraints.

Our clients

Mining

We performed a desk-based review to identify emerging issues and nature-related risks for a top 10 metals producer. This supported the development of their business case for nature-positive.

This included a review of their "biodiversity position", commitments, procedures and guidance. We explored how biodiversity and ecosystem services risks and issues are managed and reported, identified gaps, strengths, and development areas.

Infrastructure

We performed a review of a major construction and engineering company's current biodiversity policies, standards, systems, procedures, current biodiversity performance, and preparedness for a nature-positive future.

We designed and delivered a nature-related materiality assessment aligned to TNFD and SBTN requirements, which considered their raw materials supply chains.
