An invaluable part of our team.
Landowners are our most important partners. Common Ground Capital (“CGC”) performs significant due diligence to identify landowners whose properties possess the biological and ecological attributes required to achieve the targeted preservation and/or restoration goals of the targeted species and its habitat that we seek to benefit through the conservation banking model (see “What is a conservation bank tab”).
CGC is a firm believer that it is important to keep private landowners on their land and by partnering with us we can help them monetize a new and possibly significant revenue stream. After contacting the landowner to educate him/her on the conservation banking model and confirming interest in becoming a partner with CGC, CGC then deploys its financial and highly specialized human resource and intellectual capital to perform a detailed and expensive investigation of the property which requires a series of species and habitat surveys.
