About Us

Who We Are

Bank of Nature is part environmental philosophy, part finance reform, part fiduciary law innovation and part economic transformation — pointed at the “Untaken Safer Alternative Path”.

The engine is fiduciary finance and the trillion-dollar aggregated savings designed to deliver a dignified future.

The vision is long-horizon climate security and all the social benefits that cascade from that.

  • Can nature be a bank?
  • What gets us to endgame sustainability?
  • Is government the last line of defense?
  • What operates at the scale of climate?
  • What is the pension promise, and how does it affect all 8B of us?

The creation of history’s first planet-scale proxy for nature is the channel for that stewardship with the single focus: Address planet-scale crises regardless of a growth motive. This site is full of big ideas. We hope you engage with them.

Bank of Nature is a program of Cape Cod Center for Sustainability, a 501c not-for-profit social enterprise based in Provincetown, MA USA. We use transdisciplinary experts in substantive collaboration to innovate new ideas that challenge conventional practices.

We are not yet a bank and offer no banking services.


To envision a successful climate endgame with today’s existing financial tools that puts substantive forward momentum toward climate security and an economy that accounts for nature as an investor.

of Change

Humans can define the Anthropocene by revising their exceptionalism narrative to include paying nature for climate security. “If we win, nature wins more.” Public trusts can be climate heroes and economics that accounts for nature can drive an interactive, rather than extractive, partnership with nature.
