Biodiversity Net Gain: Frequently Asked Questions


Join our webinar to hear answers to Frequently Asked Questions about Biodiversity Net Gain!

The webinar follows a Q&A session about Biodiversity Net Gain on 1st May 2020. We received many questions and, as we were unable to answer them all, we are hosting this follow-up webinar to discuss the questions in more detail and illustrate these with case study examples.

Topics of the Frequently Asked Questions include:
· The Biodiversity Metric 2.0
· Designing net gains for species
· How best to secure BNG before the Environment Bill comes into force
· Enforcement and monitoring of BNG commitments

Finally we will host an open Q&A session, so please come along with questions!
