Ecology is one of key sections included across the sustainability schemes, which relates to master planning, infrastructure and buildings ecology and landscaping. This encourages project teams to identify ecologically valuable features and opportunities to protect and enhance habitats, and to mitigate unavoidable impacts. It also seeks to improve long term biodiversity management practices and strategies for assessed sites and associated areas.
