World Resources Institute: How investors make money from ecological restoration

Here at the New Restoration Economy division of the World Resources Institute, when we talk to investors, one of their first questions is, “How do we make money in restoration?

The question inspired us to make an infographic, which shows the major revenue streams deriving from restored land.

These four markets are shown in this new infographic:

  • Wood
  • Non-wood forest products
  • Crops and livestock
  • Tourism

Also, new markets are developing rapidly for the many services that restored landscapes provide, such as carbon storage and improved water quality.
