Event: Thursday 3 December, 12:30–13:15

Everybody wants the world to be a better and greener place. For developers, one way in which they can contribute to this is by paying attention to biodiversity net gain (BNG). This means encouraging an increase in appropriate natural habitat and ecological features on development sites.

Put simply, the Chartered Institute of Ecology and Environmental Management (CIEEM) defines BNG as an approach to development that leaves biodiversity in a better state than it was before. But what does this mean and how will you know if you have achieved it?

On 3 December, Mark Lang will be your guide to achieving net gain on site using the Defra biodiversity metric. He is a botany specialist, a full member of CIEEM and is on CIEEM’s England Policy Group. A director of RSK Biocensus, Mark is our Defra metric specialist and has responsibility for training other ecologists in the correct application of assessments using the metric.

During the webinar, Mark will explain the theory of the metric and how it translates into practice. He will use a recent real-world example of how the metric was applied at Eyebrook Reservoir during major emergency works. He will discuss how RSK Biocensus can support you across the life cycle of any development, whether it be a long-term project, emergency works or anything in between!

Following this webinar, you will have an improved knowledge of what BNG will mean for you. You will understand how your development can be demonstrably better and greener than before, with RSK Biocensus at your side every step of the way.
