Sustainability, ESG & Social Value Consultancy

Biodiversity Consultancy

Our future depends on nature in many ways, yet our environment is now facing rapid decline. Our ecologists and nature specialists can assist you in assessing, planning and developing an action plan to protect and enhance biodiversity. We incorporate nature into ESG reporting, understand supply chain risks, and deal with nature in the built environment, from biodiversity net gain assessments to nature-based solutions to climate change.

Leave the environment in a better state

Planning and development agendas for biodiversity are being pushed forward by legislation including biodiversity net gain (BNG) requirements for developers, new green infrastructure and urban greening guidelines in the UK, and progression of the Nature Restoration Law in the EU. Whether you require BNG and site ecology assessments or any other nature enhancement guidance, RLB's specialists are here to support you.

Implement the right nature strategy

As biodiversity decline grows clearer, ESG frameworks to assess, act and report on material nature risks and impacts, such as the Taskforce on Nature-related Financial Disclosures (TNFD) and Science Based Targets for Nature (SBTN), are growing in importance. Our ESG experts and nature specialists will work collaboratively with you to advise, identify and implement the approach that is right for you.

Harness nature-based solutions

Climate change is bringing record temperatures and extreme weather, resulting in challenging environmental conditions. Effective solutions include harnessing nature’s protective and restorative potential through nature-based solutions – cooling shade, flood protection, and much more. We have the expertise to help you understand how trees, vegetation and other green infrastructure can increase the climate resilience of your business and community.

Make smarter, greener decisions

The importance of biodiversity is well understood, but identifying and implementing appropriate actions within tight construction deadlines or within the operational budget for built assets requires the guidance of specialists. Besides supporting you practically with biodiversity net gain, ecology and nature-based solution services, RLB’s expertise in the built environment will ensure your compliance with BREEAM, Natural England requirements and beyond.
