Our Firm

Dynamic Planet works with passionate entrepreneurs to advance markets that restore nature.

Kristin Rechberger

CEO

Kristin is CEO of Dynamic Planet, which helps build conservation economies that benefit people, nature, and climate – by restoring nature rather than by depleting it.

She founded Dynamic Planet in 2012 to fill a need of business planning and outcomes for conservation and nature accountability for business. We support our mission of ‘helping advance markets to restore nature’ through new business models, fit-for-purpose finance, impact campaigns, and cross-sector engagement with partners in key geographies worldwide. Shifting from extraction to conservation economies, guided by 30×30, we focus on ocean and coastal regeneration for local and global benefits in perpetuity.

Kristin currently serves as trustee of The King Charles III Charitable Fund, and on the boards of National Geographic Pristine Seas, Mongabay, The Environmental Investigation Agency, the Environmental Film Festival, and Ocean Exploration Trust.

Before Dynamic Planet, Kristin was Senior Vice President of Global Programs and Partnerships at the National Geographic Society, where she held various leadership positions over 14 years. Kristin is a 1995 Luce Scholar, a 2009 Young Global Leader of the World Economic Forum, a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society, and a Global Sustainable Tourism Council member. Kristin has public policy and film degrees from Duke University and has completed executive programs at Harvard, Yale, Stanford, and Oxford.
