“Sustainability is more than saving energy . It’s also the conservation and development of biodiversity. With small interventions on buildings, such as architectural modifications to the design or the adaptation of a working method or the materials to be used, much can be achieved for biodiversity and liveability in the city. And even more can be achieved with an approach at neighborhood level.” The Dutch government says.
The Dutch government recently opened a website to inform about building for biodiversity – natuurinclusief bouwen. They provide the definition of nature inclusive building, some technical information for architects and a checklist for urbanists and landscape architects. This list is inspired by the Malmö checklist (see earlier blog).
The links on the right sight lead to financial support for nature inclusive buildings.
