Nature-based decision making 
scales with MRV

Measurement, reporting, and verification to address climate change & biodiversity loss.

Special Announcement

MRV Collective is now Nature Tech Collective

Nature Tech Collective

The MRV Collective is a non-profit, member supported, 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.

Our Mission

Demonstrate the power of MRV technologies in scaling nature-based decision making and closing the nature-finance gap.

Understanding MRV

Measurement, Reporting, and Verification refers to the multi-step process of measuring climate, biodiversity, and social benefits resulting from an activity towards achieving environmental, sustainability, and regenerative outcomes

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.

Collaboration. Inclusion. Results.

Biodiversity and nature protection is everyone's responsibility.
We recognize data as a cooperative asset that can bring diverse stakeholders together and accelerate decision making.

Our Promise

Integrity & Transparency

The climate and nature transition cannot be achieved without data integrity, transparency, and collaboration across all sectors of society.

Traditional Knowledge & Scientific Rigor

We recognize that both traditional ecological knowledge and western science methods are needed to realize the stewardship and protection of our home.

Urgency of Action & Reciprocity

Our actions today impact  generations to come. Data driven decisions help to manage risk, highlight opportunity, and close the nature-finance gap.

Affordable, Reliable, & Effective 

We emphasize shared learning and iteration with a multi-layered approach to help make MRV more affordable, reliable, and scalable for all. 

Use Cases of MRV

MRV based decision making helps track, transition, and respond to the risks, pressures, and drivers of climate change, nature loss, and biodiversity collapse.
