Habitat banking

Greater Manchester is seeking to embed Biodiversity Net Gain (BNG) policy across its 10 districts to ensure sustainable development that measurably enhances biodiversity as part of its commitment to becoming a green city region.

To support these ambitions, GMEF is developing a Habitat Banking Facility to unlock private investment in local nature recovery across the city region in advance of the need to mitigate the impact of new developments.
