Who We Are

Linden Trust for Conservation is led and staffed by a team of former businesspeople with deep experience in finance and management consulting.  We share the common values of conservation and a belief in the efficacy of markets.  We seek practical, efficient, non-ideological solutions to big environmental problems.


Our mission is to help stabilize Earth's natural heritage for the benefit of humanity, by creating financial incentives for governmental and private actors to reduce environmental damage.  Specifically, we seek to advance the use of market-based governmental policy and conservation finance in ways that address major environmental challenges.

How We Work

We provide both funding and substantial staff time for the execution of our projects, drawing, as appropriate, on our business and finance experience.  We generally take the initiative in designing the objective of each of our projects and in recruiting both the organizations and the additional funders needed to achieve that objective.  We work on a very small number of projects but are highly committed to each of them.
