Natural Capital service

Natural capital

Our natural capital and strategic biodiversity specialists can address your corporate biodiversity reporting needs, meeting the requirements of the Taskforce on Nature-related Financial Disclosures (TNFD) and enabling biodiversity to be captured through ESG reporting.

  • Greengage is experienced in the production of corporate or bespoke portfolio/fund-led biodiversity strategies and biodiversity action plans. We have worked with a range of major landholders, fund managers and developers, designing long-term nature conservation targets which reflect wider climate change adaptation objectives and industry trends. These strategies can be designed to meet emerging TNFD need and be captured through ESG reporting, helping inform targets and define KPIs. As part of this we have utilised our ecological survey experience alongside innovative ecosystem service valuation techniques, GIS mapping and wider energy, carbon and sustainability expertise to provide holistic climate change resilience plans. We have also supported in the production of industry and academic guidance on urban biodiversity and green infrastructure. Greengage runs corporate training sessions for green infrastructure and biodiversity and can help encourage a businesses’ engagement with nature.

  • Greengage is experienced in undertaking ecosystem service valuation (ESV) assessments using a range of tools including the Green Infrastructure Valuation Toolkit and iTree Eco. Such assessments can assess a site’s value with respect to ecosystem service provision, such as carbon sequestration, flood water attenuation, biodiversity gain and urban heat island effect reduction. Benefits can be described in financial terms or through qualitative appraisals. ESV can help identify climate resilience risk factors and inform actions for management and intervention at sites, either to support new development and planning requirements, or contribute towards CSR objectives.

  • Green infrastructure (GI) describes the strategically planned network of multifunctional green space that exists in our towns and cities. Our urban ecologists have a wealth of knowledge surrounding the design and implementation of innovative GI solutions for developments across London and the UK, undertaking GI audits and producing GI strategies. We work with design teams to provide bespoke GI advice and design that can feed into site wide management plans, address planning conditions or complement ESG targets, building on our understanding of UK wide policy drivers and LPA requirements.

    Greengage employ some of the UK’s leading specialists in GI and living roof design, having specified and monitored green roofs across the UK. We aim to deliver innovative multifunctional solutions, working with architects and landscape teams to also maximise BREEAM Land Use & Ecology credit achievement.
