The UK Green Building Council (UKGBC) has submitted applications for partners in its latest Biodiversity and Environmental Net Gain (BNG & ENG) project. This will be carried out as part of the Resilience and Nature Program that aims to help the built environment adapt to the impacts of climate change, maximize net environmental gains and promote biodiversity.

We are now introducing two different ways to get involved in our upcoming BNG & ENG project; offers UKGBC members the opportunity to become project partners or participate in a larger project review group. The project aims to help organizations take practical action on biodiversity and net environmental gains in light of the November 2023 changes to UK legislation mandating a 10% net biodiversity gain for all new developments. In particular, she hopes:

  • Examine key definitions and terminology to “demystify” complex concepts.
  • Providing the necessary resources and information to enable the industry to exceed government minimum standards for net biodiversity gains, including examining a variety of existing case study examples at multiple scales.
  • Bring organizations together who want to develop their understanding of BNG/ENG concepts and available organizational strategies.
  • Highlight the diversity of resources available to support BNG/ENG outside of traditional understandings and frameworks.
  • Ensure that BNG/ENG strategies used on-site are consistent with government policy changes as part of environmental law and support long-term authentic net positive change.
