Biodiversity and the Built Environment: Strategies for a Nature Positive Future
May 22, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
This session will discuss what native plants are, why they are important, and how they play an integral role in supporting healthy, sustainable buildings. Native plant landscapes can help buildings reach performance targets, address resiliency, and act as a pillar to net zero strategies. In addition, the multi-benefit nature of native plant landscapes can help buildings meet credits for LEED and SITES certifications, while also enabling buildings to address their impacts on nature within their direct operations. Integration with additional frameworks, including the UN Sustainable Development Goals, Taskforce for Nature Related Disclosures, and the Science Based Targets for Nature will also be discussed.
