Our second annual search for UK ecosystem partners with digital technology solutions that address biodiversity loss and help to achieve net-zero.


The successful partners will join our growing nature-based ecosystem.  Read more about CGI’s sustainability programme and our digital capabilities that support nature-based solutions.  

We are seeking digital technology solutions that protect, manage, restore, or create natural or modified ecosystems on land, in the sky and space, or in marine environments. These solutions can also mitigate climate change or support adaptation and build resilience. You can read more about last year's search and the selected organisations.

If your organisation is an SME and has technology proposition(s), including software and/or devices of Technology Readiness Level 4 or above that help one or more of the following categories, we would love to hear from you:

  • Sea 

  • Earth 

  • Sky 

Based on agreed criteria, we'll select up to four organisations to actively partner with us as part of our nature-based ecosystem. Selected organisations will join CGI's nature-based ecosystem efforts with associated access to CGI members, clients, and markets, as appropriate.
