Our practical approach – the 4 Returns framework – is being used by people all over the world to restore their local landscape and keep it healthy for generations to come. In 2021, we achieved the following results:

  • Return of Inspiration: we introduced the opportunities brought by landscape restoration to 5.7 million people through (online) media, local pilots, research projects, workshops, webinars, and festivals.
  • Social Return: the regenerative businesses in our landscapes created 394 jobs.
  • Natural Return: more than 30,400 hectares of degraded land are currently undergoing regeneration and restoration; a further 12 million in the territories where we work have the potential to be regenerated over the coming years.
  • Financial Return: our partners have identified or set up 36 business cases rooted in the 4 Returns framework.
