Our mission is to enhance the environment that sustains healthy communities. We empower public and private sector leaders to maximize their effectiveness using Performance-Driven Conservation tools and practices.
Improve the Environment
We focus our actions to improve the environmental systems that support healthy communities.
Open and Honest Communication
We build on areas of consensus, address challenges and acknowledge uncomfortable truths. We believe honest feedback makes us, our clients and our communities of practice more effective.
Create Enduring Change
We develop tools and practices that alter the basis for decision-making by aligning social, economic, and environmental objectives. We create tailored solutions that work for our partners and their communities.
Environmental Incentives got its start as a small business consulting firm working to improve the way public funds were being spent on efforts to address the decline in Lake Tahoe’s famous clarity in 2004. Today, we have grown to operate four offices across the U.S. and support field staff in multiple countries. We partner with program managers and funders to improve their effectiveness in three areas: water resources, wildlife and land conservation, and international development.
Our clients and partners are leaders in their fields and communities, inspiring others to innovate and make decisions that improve the environment. Environmental Incentives specializes in performance-driven program design and adaptive management, and we rely on our partners to bring leading expertise in science, engineering, and technology.
