We understand the challenges facing planning authorities. Economic and ecological. And as our towns and cities continue to grow, making sure developers deliver biodiversity net gain becomes even more vital. So at Environment Bank, we created a plan. A plan that works for people, the economy and nature.


Unlocking economic growth

By establishing a nationwide network of unique habitat banks, we’re launching Biodiversity Net Gain (BNG) Units – a groundbreaking new product that unlocks economic growth, improves nature, and gives developers a simple, risk-free way to implement BNG.

Our BNG Units are fully compliant with national and local planning policies, and are compatible with both section 106 agreements and conservation covenants. They provide an auditable and robust solution, helping LPAs meet their obligations as set out in the Environment Act and achieve the Government’s Net Zero ambitions by 2050.

Our innovative solution makes implementing BNG simple. It removes the burden and the risks from developers, while fully supporting the planning process and providing a seamless service to LPAs for the life of the BNG commitment.


Investing in local economies

We’re working with LPAs nationwide and investing millions in the local economy to create habitat banks in every LPA area, aligning them with local biodiversity priorities and broader environmental objectives.

This is real investment and it’s happening now to make the significant changes needed to restore biodiversity at scale.
