North Carolina is home to more than 40 different types of wetlands— including saltwater, brackish tidal, and freshwater wetlands.
As such, North Carolina has established many programs to protect riparian buffers and reduce nutrient loads. RES was one of the earliest ecological offset providers delivering water quality solutions in North Carolina.
Our history in North Carolina begins in 1997, when Environmental Banc & Exchange, LLC (EBX), now RES, began as a firm specializing in the protection and restoration of rare, diminishing, and degraded ecosystems and resources.
Today, RES is the largest private mitigation provider in North Carolina. Collaborating with private and public clients, we develop and supply ecological offsets to help companies obtain required permits for unavoidable project-related impacts on wetlands, streams, and habitats.
