How our technology works

Our AI-backed monitoring, reporting and verification (MRV) tools give you a better understanding of your land than ever before. This data can be used to prove the impact of nature positive practices, to your customers, investors and legislators.

How our models work

Our machine learning models predict and prove how nature positive practices will impact the health of land. All our models are reviewed by our partners in the scientific community to ensure that they are appropriate, and are tested to ensure that they are statistically valid.

Satellite data

We monitor plots onboarded onto Landler using several types of satellite data; including pictures of the Earth’s surface, thermal measurements and observations from radar. This data is combined to build models which predict the impact of nature positive practices at scale.

Field data

We collect field data from private and public databases. Plus, we work with our customers to collect samples and measurements from their land. This data is used to train our models to predict the impact of nature positive practices across carbon, water, soil and biodiversity.

How it works:

What our models measure

Biodiversity is a measure of the richness of nature. It’s the backbone to the ecosystems that allow us to flourish.

Soil Ground Logo

Carbon is the building block of life. It regulates temperature, makes up the food we eat, and is a key energy source.

Soil supports and nurtures all growing plants. It purifies our water, protects us against flooding and combats drought.

Water is essential for the planet to flourish. It creates and sustains the ecosystems on which life depends.

MODEL VALIDATION

We work with leading scientific institutions

We have assembled a scientific board, comprised of leading academics and scientists from across the world.

Before we build any models, this board helps us to define model scope and the criteria for scientific robustness.

After we have developed models, this board conducts a methods review to validate their quality and suitability.

“The uncompromisingly scientific approach behind landler.io impressed me from the very beginning.

What I find particularly remarkable is the team's willingness to critically reflect on their own approach”

FAQs

Are you an MRV company?

We are not an MRV company or a research group. We also donʼt just offer Natural Capital Accounts. We offer something unique, a new market infrastructure that transforms nature positive outcomes into assets that can be traded. We call this Nature Equity. Our goal is for Nature Equity to become a well-known term that is adopted by actors in our field, and beyond. For that to happen, we need to bring people along with us, using our communications to define Nature Equity whenever we can.

How does it work?

Landler monitors plots entered into the platform by Land Stewards using remote sensing and other data sources. These models periodically perform measurements and predictions of the following indicators:

Carbon: Soil organic carbon stock, Greenhouse gas emissions

Water: Surface soil moisture, Water holding capacity, Wilting point, Soil moisture trend

Biodiversity: Percentage cover of biodiversity zones. In addition to these state indicators, Landler provides medium-term forecasts of potential improvements in soil organic carbon stock and water holding capacity under optimal land-management scenarios. Model measurements and predictions are passed to the land steward in the form of a Natural Capital Account.

What kind of companies use Landler?

Our first users are the Agrifood companies and the farmers who act as their suppliers. Investing in Nature Equity assets can help businesses secure their supply chain for the long-term, all while meeting nature positive expectations from consumers and scope 3 requirements. Businesses enter into Nature Equity agreements with land stewards. These are outcome-based contracts wherein businesses pay land stewards when they demonstrate improvements in carbon storage, water holding capacity or biodiversity. In doing so, businesses increase the quality and resilience of supply, while meeting the requirements of growing nature-related legislation.

What technology does Landler use to analyse the land?

Our MRV technology is used to monitor Natural Capital in the dimensions of Carbon Water and Biodiversity using a combination of local sampling data and earth observation satellite data, machine learning and biophysical process modelling. A process model simulates biophysical processes based on known physical and chemical processes, for example carbon turnover rates in soils. Landler takes a special approach, using the earth observation data to derive inputs to biophysical process models where feasible, in addition to other data sources, for example weather records. A machine learning model is an encapsulated statistical relationship which between one or more satellite observations and field reference data. For building machine learning models, we collect field reference data from a variety of private and public databases as well as directly from land stewards. In addition, Landler works with partners to collect measurements directly from the field (samples). Landler relies on different satellite-based measurement techniques (e.g., optical, radar, lidar) in combination with biophysical process models and machine learning models to provide scalable, independent and affordable MRV services.

What is Nature Equity?

Building on the principles of natural capital accounting, Nature Equity starts with better understanding our land. MRV models, fed by geospatial and ground data, measure the biophysical aspects of a piece of land across multiple indicators. When enhancements are made to the biophysical aspects of this land, they become Nature Equity Assets. This asset can then be bought and sold on Landler.

What is a Nature Equity Uplift?

Uplift units are a digital unique and non-reproducible representation of an improvement measurement of natural capital value, as measured by Landler.
