Delivering Net Gains for the Environment through Built Development

Two new CPD-level training opportunities

As mandatory biodiversity net gain is becoming law in England and also increasingly applied in the rest of the UK, attention is turning to how built development can secure net gains for the natural environment as a whole.

In partnership with net gain experts at WSP, the Ecosystems Knowledge Network is now offering cutting-edge training designed to equip professionals involved in shaping the built environment with all they need to know to secure net gains for the environment.

Participation in these courses will give participants the confidence to champion net gains for the environment in their organisation, as well as the ability to undertake their own robust technical assessments with minimal need for dependence on external support.
