Tellurium Partners’ principals and their affiliate company, Great Ecology, have extensive experience in raising and managing project capital, developing successful and investable projects, designing, developing, and monitoring habitat restoration projects including mitigation and habitat banks and conservation and land use projects. This experience, combined with our unmatched experience in real estate management and development, sets Tellurium Partners apart from other mitigation banking and habitat planning companies.
Tellurium Partners is a Public Benefit Corporation (PBC). We work to locate and develop strategic mitigation banking opportunities as part of our mission to:
restore and conserve wetlands and natural habitats, and to provide public agencies and private parties a method for complying with governmental mitigation requirements for the disturbance of ecological resources.
Public Benefit Corporations have clearly defined social and environmental missions. The articles of incorporation and bylaws of a PBC must state their social and environmental mission and they must report on their adherence to that mission.
PBCs are not driven solely by profitability—to the contrary, fulfilling its public benefit mission becomes a prime responsibility of the company, its officers, and its employees!

A PBC is different from other corporate forms in two key aspects:
- A PBC, by its very nature, must operate in a socially responsible and sustainable manner; and
- A PBC has an explicit corporate purpose to promote one or more public benefits.
Viability is certainly important to a PBC, but that purpose is expanded to balance social factors to enhance value to its shareholders, its customers, and the well-being of the communities where it operates. A traditional corporation prioritizes the financial interests of the shareholders where PBCs are not required to maximize shareholder value – consequently, they enjoy legal protection to balance financial and non-financial interests when making decisions. A PBC can enthusiastically explore and promote public benefits in the conduct of its corporate charter.
PBCs are not beholden to profitability – to the contrary, fulfilling its public benefit mission becomes a prime responsibility of the company, its officers, and its employees!

Partnership mentality. At Tellurium Partners, we believe partnerships are key to harnessing the best resources for a successful mitigation project. We treat every party in every transaction as a partner, and it shows in the way we do business.
