NTC is a nonprofit membership organization, sector intelligence unit and venture studio accelerating towards effective coexistence between humanity and the rest of nature.

Nature tech is the key to closing the data and trust gaps preventing meaningful private sector investments into nature.

We believe this can only happen if we solve for the nature finance gap. NTC exist as a capacity builder boosting its 130+ members, and is engaged in meaningful transition work in regenerative agriculture, biodiversity and conservation, green supply chains, and more.
