Nature-based solutions business models


The aim is to demonstrate how some nature-based solutions can develop into replicable, partly or fully self-sustaining businesses, so that proGIreg continues to provide sustainable benefits to society, also beyond the project.

To do so, it is necessary to identify and understand possible bottlenecks for nature-based solutions when entering the market. Based on information from key proGIreg stakeholders gained via questionnaires, as well as information from cities external to the project, proGIreg will create a series of reports dedicated to the technological and non-technological barriers to implementation of nature-based solutions, both within the project and beyond.

A business model catalogue will present the economic and societal benefits of nature-based solutions and how they can be transformed into partly or fully self-sustaining businesses.
