An eco-account serves to stockpile areas for nature and species conservation that can be used for later interventions requiring compensation measures.
Nature conservation areas to compensate for later interventions in nature and landscape
Eco-accounts allow to dedicate areas to nature and species conservation and to document and administer compensatory and replacement measures in form of eco-points which can be freely traded. Eco-points can later be assigned to projects requiring compensation measures.
To register own areas in an eco-account results in a permanent commitment to the specified use or maintenance of this area as well as implementation of the agreed measures.
We therefore ensure to agree the proposed measures set out in the development concept in close cooperation with the land owner.
