About this book

In his book Whitworth draws lessons from the world’s most tech‑savvy, high‑impact organizations to show how we can make real gains for the environment. The principles of his approach, dubbed quantified conservation, will be familiar to any thriving entrepreneur: situational awareness, bold outcomes, innovation and technology, data and analytics, and gain‑focused investment. As President of The Freshwater Trust, Whitworth has put quantified conservation into practice, pioneering the model of a “do‑tank” that is dramatically changing how rivers can get restored across the United States. The stories in Quantified highlight the most precious of resources—water—but they apply to any environmental effort. Whether in the realm of policy, agriculture, business, or philanthropy, Whitworth is charting a new course for conservation.
