The MRV Collective is a non-profit, design and build, industry coalition advancing strategic applications of measurement, reporting, and verification (MRV) technologies to address climate change, biodiversity loss, and close the $700 billion dollar annual nature-finance gap.
Demonstrate the power of MRV technologies in scaling nature-based decision making and closing the nature-finance gap.
We envision a world where nature is valued and respected by nature-dependent sectors of society and earth positive actions are backed by data integrity, scientific rigor, and traditional ecological knowledge.
Nature tech in action: case studies from the field
What is nature tech and what does it look like in action? These questions – and many more – will be answered at a session that showcases nature tech start-ups deploying the latest technology in the field to scale up high-integrity nature-based solutions.
The collection and analysis of data related to environmental indicators, such as greenhouse gas emissions, biodiversity, energy use, pollution, and natural resources.
Observed data is reported and standardized to allow for comparability across sectors, organizations, and countries so managers, investors, accreditation bodies, and governance entities can make informed decisions.
Independent assessment and auditing of reported data ensures accuracy and reliability. A shared commitment to learning and progress aligns all actors who endeavor to iterate, cultivate trust, and invest in relationship.
The climate and nature transition cannot be achieved without data integrity, transparency, and collaboration across all sectors of society.
We recognize that both traditional ecological knowledge and western science methods are needed to realize the stewardship and protection of our home.
Our actions today impact generations to come. Data driven decisions help to manage risk, highlight opportunity, and close the nature-finance gap.
We emphasize shared learning and iteration with a multi-layered approach to help make MRV more affordable, reliable, and scalable for all.
Stronger together. Events, collaboration & spotlight opportunities to tackle common challenges together.

MRV helps monitor the effectiveness of private sector commitments to stop deforestation from happening in supply chains and business operations.
Measurement, reporting, and verification (MRV) is a critical component of any country’s efforts to mitigate climate change.
MRV systems and their proper functioning are crucial to unlocking carbon finance and showing progress on climate and biodiversity goals.
MRV is integral to financing and coordinating a nature positive transition and accelerating planetary repair to support life and prosperity for generations to come.
