Who are we?

Terrasos is a company specialized in the structuring and operation of environmental investments. Our work is focused in four main areas: offset and environmental investments, impact analysis, development of the intervention strategies and data management. Our activity is based on the premise that sustainable development involves a balance between the economic, social and environmental functionality of the territory. We collaborate with public and private entities in the design and implementation of natural resource management and sustainability strategies.

In our work we apply the principles of clarity, depth, interdisciplinarity, collaboration and transformation. Our team is made up of experts in the areas of the environment and natural resources, public policy and business administration, land and territorial planning, and information management.
