Our objective is to maintain biodiversity in the local environment. The built environment has a significant influence on the diversity of the ecosystems (ecological communities, habitats and landscapes), the diversity of the species there and their genetic diversity. We want to encourage positive steps towards creating, maintaining and increasing biodiversity both on buildings themselves and in their environs.
People generally feel happier and healthier when they are in a natural environment. Subjective well-being has an enormous effect on people's health and on what they can achieve. Furthermore, plants in, on and around the building and respect for the local fauna create a positive image of the building. This increases value of the property. In addition, choosing plants that are suitable for the site can reduce subsequent costs as these are often hardier, less susceptible to disease etc., and require less care.
