Part one of a three-part series of webinars on the umbrella topic of "Biodiversity". Please note this webinar was originally scheduled to take place at 10am on the 1st June, but, due to unforeseen circumstances, has been moved to a 14:00 BST start. We apologise for any inconvenience. 

To help environmental professionals engage with the issue and share good practice, we have established this series of webinars. During the three-part series, we will hear from Chartered Environmentalists from across sectors on topics such as Biodiversity Net Gain and what organisations are doing to protect and enhance biodiversity. The series has been developed and is supported by the Chartered Institute of Ecology and Environmental Management (CIEEM). 

While our CEnv speakers and those linked with their work are specialists in their field, they provide the perspectives from different sectors, which makes for an interesting debate. Each webinar includes a Q&A - with the opportunity to submit your questions prior to and during the webinar itself. 

To find out more about the speakers and their talks in part 1, and/or to listen and participate for free on Monday, 1st June 2020 (14:00 - 14:40 BST), please keep reading. 


Biodiversity Net Gain: Good Practice Principles For Development 

Biodiversity Net Gain has been defined as 'an approach to development that leaves biodiversity in a better state than before'. Its importance is only growing given that Biodiversity Net Gain is proposed as mandatory under the UK's new Environment Bill. 

As Principal Co-ordinating Author of the 'Biodiversity Net Gain: Good practice principles for development' guidance document (developed collaboratively by CIEEM, IEMA and CIRIA), in this webinar Julia will outline the key principles in good practice for achieving Biodiversity Net Gain. 


By Julia Baker CEnv - Biodiversity Technical Specialist at Balfour Beatty 

As Biodiversity Technical Specialist for Balfour Beatty, Julia has worked on business and biodiversity initiatives for 20 years. She is the lead author of the UK’s Good Practice Principles on Biodiversity Net Gain and has designed and implemented Biodiversity Net Gain on a variety of infrastructure projects including transport, energy and housing. Julia runs professional training courses on Biodiversity Net Gain and metrics, and is Chair of the forthcoming British Standard on Biodiversity Net Gain. She is also a Visiting Researcher for Oxford University and a Technical Advisor for the Institute of Environment and Development.
