Webinar on Thursday, September 22, 2016: Principles for Achieving Net Gain Biodiversity Outcomes from Development

In this webi­nar, brought to you by IEMA, CIRIA and CIEEM, Julia Baker will out­line and review the best prac­tice prin­ci­ples for UK indus­try to achieve bio­di­ver­sity net gain out­comes from devel­op­ment. It will focus on recent prin­ci­ples, drafted and devel­oped through a col­lab­o­ra­tive and cross-profession based part­ner­ship. It will also pro­vide exam­ples of bio­di­ver­sity net-gain approaches and insights into devel­op­ing guid­ance.

When: Sep­tem­ber 22, 2016 1:30 PM — 2:45 PM CEST

Some infor­ma­tion on the webinar

CIRIA cham­pi­ons per­for­mance improve­ment in con­struc­tion and the built envi­ron­ment sec­tors through the pro­mo­tion of good prac­tice. Col­lab­o­rat­ing with IEMA and CIEEM, it is aim­ing to develop new prin­ci­ples and guid­ance relat­ing to the deliv­ery of bio­di­ver­sity net gain.

Early prin­ci­ples were informed by responses to the 2013 Green Paper con­sul­ta­tion, expe­ri­ence gained through the Defra national pilot tests on bio­di­ver­sity off­set­ting and also by the Busi­ness and Bio­di­ver­sity Off­set Pro­gramme (BBOP). The draft bio­di­ver­sity net-gain prin­ci­ples were then fur­ther devel­oped, informed and refined through engage­ment with mul­ti­ple stake­hold­ers from NGOs through to pro­fes­sion­als in Construction.

Along with guid­ance (in devel­op­ment), the new prin­ci­ples are designed to guide those seek­ing to achieve bio­di­ver­sity net gain for their project, and help them to demon­strate that they have fol­lowed best prac­tice. The initiative’s next stage will be to launch the prin­ci­ples and to com­plete ‘best prac­tice guid­ance’ that will fur­ther define key con­cepts, and con­tain prac­ti­cal advice and case study examples.

The webi­nar is an ideal oppor­tu­nity to review the new draft prin­ci­ples, and is suit­able for any mem­ber engaged and work­ing on devel­op­ments, from Ecol­o­gists and EIA Co-ordinators through to Sus­tain­abil­ity or Envi­ron­ment pro­fes­sion­als in com­pa­nies or in the pub­lic sec­tor.
The main pre­sen­ta­tion will be fol­lowed by a panel Q&A ses­sion where our speaker Julia Baker will be joined by rep­re­sen­ta­tives from the col­lab­o­rat­ing organisations.
