Verna is a mission-driven business, using geospatial data science to address the climate and nature crises.
We help landowners, investors, and policymakers to use land in ways that draw down carbon, enhance biodiversity and generate sustainable returns – e.g. through woodland creation, habitat creation and enhancement, and regenerative agriculture.
Using the latest data science techniques and the power of cloud computing, our tools cut through the complexity of science, economics, and regulation to identify the best answers to crucial questions – like how to use land, what land to buy, or which landowners to engage with.
If you have challenges connected to land use and environmental goals – e.g. Net Zero, Biodiversity Net Gain, or nutrient neutrality – we have the tools to help.

One of our tools is ForestFounder, which assesses unlimited land areas and produces a map showing where tree-planting will be feasible, beneficial, and – if desired – profitable.
ForestFounder provides estimates of the carbon, biodiversity, and financial outcomes of planting in the locations found.
This helps landowners with carbon, biodiversity, and financial planning, investors to find optimal sites for forest investment, and policymakers to assess regional potential and identify key landowners.
