NEW! The case for nature-based solutions and going beyond net zero

Webinar on Friday 15 July to look at the increasing importance of nature-based solutions in construction projects.

With nature-based solutions and the promotion of biodiversity considerations becomming more and more important on construction and infrastructure projects, it's a timely moment for an Infrastructure Intelligence webinar on Friday 15 July 2022 to look closer into the issues involved.

Many forward-thinking organisations are now actively advocating the use of nature-based solutions to support sustainable adaptation and development. More and more, nature is being talked about in a construction context and the issue was a key feature of the discussions and debates COP26, where over 90% of the policy statements released had the word nature included in them.

Pursuing nature-based solutions is a crucial part of the fight against climate change and the recognition that we are all dependent on a connected network of places where trees, soil, water and thriving, healthy ecosystems support health, wellbeing and the development of a future as a thriving and climate resilient society.

This webinar will look at the increasing importance of nature-based solutions and the promotion of an approach to infrastructure development that protects, sustainably manages and restores ecosystems to provide human wellbeing and biodiversity benefits.
