Biodiversity Net Gain

The word Biodiversity describes the variety of all life on Earth. The term can be observed at a genetic level, for individual species or communities of creatures, all the way up to entire ecosystems, such as forests or coral reefs. 

Habitat and biodiversity loss is one of the leading causes of climate change, and can be one of the major tools for reversing it if we take action now. Building upon the UK Government's commitments in the 2021 Environment Bill, our platform provides the only fully-automated mechanism for developers, landowners and their agents to quickly and efficiently meet BNG commitments.
