Has anyone heard of, or experience of Environment Bank?

https://environmentbank.com/landowners/habitat-bank-creation-how-it-works

I have no experience of applying for or receiving funding and I'm naturally a bit cautious."Beware of the Greeks, even when they come bearing gifts......" and all that.

Essentially what am I giving up in exchange for financial reward? Are there pitfalls or better alternatives?

Thanks in advance

If it looks too good to be true it probably is.  Income 27K per hectare????

Putting aside whether it is legitimate it makes a lot of sense to increase biodiversity in under productive areas rather than taking good land out of production. I think it is worth investigating. Farmers Weekly had the following article.

That is an advertisement not an article - it's almost what is on their website.  It may be a good concept but it needs a lot of checking up on in my opinion

That is a fair point doganjo about the piece in FG. Any potential business proposition needs thoroughly investigating and I think we all agree on that.
