Conservation Finance

We believe that conservation and return on investment are not mutually exclusive goals. We aim to help permanently preserve land and ecosystems by pioneering a new relationship between private investment and land conservation. BlueLine provides advisory and representation services to land owners in the monetization of the conservation values of their real estate.

In Virginia, BlueLine employs mitigation, land preservation tax credits, public and private grants, purchase development rights, and payment for ecosystem services as tools for funding conservation efforts. Conservation initiatives range from a focus on open space to the preservation of unique ecosystems and biodiversity.

While our company began with projects in Virginia, our services now stretch across the Eastern seaboard and to other continents. In addition to conservation incentives, our work abroad employs payment for ecosystem services, green bonds, and private impact offsets. For a look at our recent projects abroad, click here.
