Where it all started
Earth day 2021

EarthToday was founded in 2018 and launched in The Netherlands on Earth Day 2021. A diverse group of thought leaders, change makers and ambassadors joined forces and used their voices for the benefit of our planet. Together, they rose up to the challenge to protect 1 million m² of nature in 1 month, to get things started for the many millions we still need to protect in the coming years.

About EarthToday
A community for change

We’re a for-purpose company on a mission to increase awareness on the state of the planet and accelerate its protection, at scale.

We connect brands, individuals and nature protection organizations in a whole new model of collaboration to protect nature. Individuals can protect square meters of nature for €1.20 per m² and receive a unique proof of protection, registered in their name. Brands can use the protected m² of nature as a purpose-driven reward for their customers and partners. Together we can protect 50% of the planet by 2050. Meter x meter.

Union Of Nature reserves
Impact on the ground

Global nature protection organizations have joined forces in the Union of Nature Foundation (UON), a world’s first business model collaboration to accelerate nature protection. UON protects your m² on EarthToday. For each m² protected, the organizations commit to bringing a new m² under protection, on a 1-for-1 basis. This is how we scale. Various methods are used, including conservation, rewilding, restoration and sustainable development. All supported by and inclusive to local communities.

EarthToday x Union of Nature
PARTNERSHIP FOR THE PLANET

The land protected by the members of the Union of Nature is divided into m² and geocoded on EarthToday. Individuals and brands can protect these m² and receive a unique proof of protection, registered to their name. On EarthToday they can also virtually travel to their protected m² of nature and learn more about how it is being protected.

A for-purpose company
planet. people. profit.

EarthToday is a ‘for-purpose company’; a new business model and organizational structure which combines the purpose of a charity with the growth incentives of a company. By design, a for-purpose company is community-owned and directs its value to its purpose from day one. Every member that protects m² of nature, is rewarded with a depositary receipt of a share in EarthToday. This way, we share responsibility and ownership.

• Protect m² today: 83% of all revenue goes to our purpose
• Future return on investment: 67% will go to our purpose
• All future profits will be invested in our purpose

FAQ
Become a funder
SUPPORT EARTHTODAY FINANCIALLY

Creating a purpose portal to facilitate a global community requires serious funds. EarthToday is funded by people who want to financially contribute to EarthToday as a company, and in turn receive depositary receipts. We call them funders. Everybody is welcome to become a funder. Funders invest in EarthToday and commit upfront that two-thirds of their returns will be used for-purpose – if and when billions of m² have been protected.

The same conditions apply to all of us. We’re in it together.
