Biodiversity Net Gain - Where are we now?

Biodiversity Net Gain is development that leaves biodiversity in a better state than before. It is a fundamental part of the Environment Bill which is currently being reviewed in Parliament.

In this webinar, alongside another guest speaker, (whom we will reveal nearer the time) we will take a more in depth dive into Biodiversity Net Gain and the Biodiversity Metric 2.0 calculator tool using the improvement of species rich grassland as an example. At the same time we will review where are we in terms of adoption and rollout in England.
