The scientific consensus indicates that nature-based solutions will contribute to a third of the mitigation efforts by 2030, with forest ecosystems playing a significant role. However, the current Measurement, Reporting, and Verification (MRV) process presents a major bottleneck to scaling market-based solutions.

Traditional MRV approaches rely on field visits by forestry experts or specialized consultancies, making them exclusive, expensive, and slow. As a result, MRV is not easily accessible and does not scale well, hindering the development of much-needed nature-based solutions. To overcome these limitations, MRV needs to be open, affordable, and fast.

That's where Kanop comes in. We have developed a Software as a Service (SaaS) platform powered by AI, designed to measure the environmental benefits provided by nature-based projects at scale. Our proprietary machine learning models analyze remote sensing images to generate the impact data required by the market.

Kanop delivers results quickly (within days) and accessibly through our Web App and API. Moreover, our SaaS business model ensures that MRV remains affordable, enabling the growth of nature-based solutions and their positive impact on our environment.
