Delivering Biodiversity Net Gain (BNG) can be costly and time-consuming for developers and getting it wrong can be disastrous. At Environment Bank, we’ve created a new plan. A risk-free way to meet changing regulations, while allowing you to focus on your core expertise.


BNG Units

Through our national network of habitat banks, we’ve launched BNG Units. This groundbreaking product enables developers to efficiently meet offsite BNG requirements with minimal disruption to the planning process through a single transaction.

Having a nationwide network of habitat banks means that we can ensure the availability of credits locally, providing a robust and efficient way to deliver net gain on development projects.

Our units can be purchased as and when needed, with the balance paid once planning permission is granted, and you can even buy credits in advance. We will liaise with the LPA to take care of the legal aspects and then Environment Bank will be fully responsible for comprehensively managing, monitoring and reporting the performance of our habitat banks to the LPA for 30 years, so you don’t have to.


Risk free

Our BNG Units are fully compliant with the Environment Act 2021 and the NPPF. We can become signatory to section 106 agreements and share all certificates with the planning authority to demonstrate you’ve met your biodiversity offset conditions.

We know BNG inside out and have the ecological, consultancy, and legal expertise to implement it. We are forward-funded and all liability sits with us and not you. Simply purchase units and walk away.
