The Toha Network

Building a system to bring new value to regenerative action.

We all have a role to play in the regeneration of our planet.

The Toha Network is an ecosystem of ventures, impact investors, scientists and communities cooperating to create new value for science-based regenerative action.

We believe with new market infastructure, the true value of environmental action can be recognised, traded and paid for. The Toha system exists to help unleash impact investment to the frontline of climate action - at scale.

We are launching a nature accelerator to kickstart the system at pilot sites across Aotearoa, New Zealand. Come and join the team taking action for nature.

How does it work? New market infrastructure to fund action for nature

Take action
Report data
Access finance or MAHI payments
Buy access to outcomes data
Invest at scale

Network contributors undertake work for nature like restoring wetlands, managing pests or collecting native seed based on pledge templates developed by experts.

Take action image

Network contributors report verifiable data to the network about their actions and outcomes for nature and build their pledge asset.

Report data image

To help cover the costs of the work, Network contributors can unlock impact-linked pledge finance or MAHI payments.

Access finance

Buyers like governments, supply chains, businesses, consumers, banks and insurers can purchase proof of outcomes, known as claims, with TOHA network tokens. These are supported by verifiable data and science-backed templates.

Buy outcome data image

Financial markets can invest in action at scale via MAHI, impact finance or speculation on risk in performance of future claims.

Making action fundable at scale Pledge templates in development

Pledge templates are developed by experts and guide people through the activities and data collection to take environmental action and build their pledge data asset. Members can unlock MAHI payments for approved activities in the Network.

Backed by science & data Claim templates in development

Claim templates are developed by experts and can measure and prove outcomes achieved on the land. Each claim is an asset backed by verifiable data and can be purchased by governments, supply chains, banks, impact funders or investors.

Need help Frequently Asked Questions

Why does investing early in MAHI make it more valuable?

Based on the date you invest in MAHI you receive a Time Value of Action multiplier (TVA). The earlier you fund action, the higher the TVA multiplier.

In the future, when TOHA network tokens launch, you will be able to swap your MAHI for TOHA at this TVA multiplier. You can use this TOHA to pay for claims e.g. proof of carbon sequestration or biodiversity improvement and get access to the verifiable data that back this up. Alternatively, you can trade your TOHA on the secondary market to others who want to buy proof of outcomes or data access. Holding TOHA will also give you voting rights in the Network.

Buying MAHI is the only way to secure access to TOHA without bidding on the secondary market.

To learn more, have play with the MAHI-to-TOHA calculator.

Can I access MAHI to fund action on my land block?

Currently MAHI is only available to pilot projects that are being used to test the system.

As more MAHI is purchased, the pilots will be expanded to include more farms and land blocks.

Register you interest here in taking action on your land block and joining the pilot.

When will these pledge and claim templates be available for other land blocks to start using?

Pending MAHI funding these will start being developed and tested at the pilot sites in early 2024 and will start being made available to other land blocks in 2025.

Register you interest here in taking action on your land block and joining the pilot.

Who owns the data I report in the Network?

You own the data you report to the Network.

Data sovereignty is a critical design principle in the Toha Network. The system allows you to monetise your data – if, and when, you choose to.

Toha Network Trust protects your interests as a data owner by holding your data in trust.

Who will buy access to claims and outcome data in the Network?

Trusted data about what is happening in our environment is increasingly in demand.

Buyers of claims could include:

  • Businesses who need to report on their Scope 3 emissions, biodiversity or water quality impacts within their supply chains
  • Local and central government to measure national progress towards environmental targets like NDC1 or our biodiversity strategy and offer new incentives for achieving these outcomes
  • Organisations who want to fund positive outcomes as part of their ESG strategies
  • Banks and insurers who need to meet their climate-related disclosure requirements, offer impact-linked finance products or understand the risks and mitigation efforts of properties and businesses on their books
