Partners of the EU-program LIFE project BooGI-BOP («Boosting Urban Green Infrastructure Through Biodiversity-oriented Design of Business Premises») will host on February 18th 2021 from 14:30 to 16:00 pm (CET) an online seminar on “Multifuncional business premises for people and nature”. The session is addressed to facility managers.
Business premises usually play a subordinate role in the daily working process. However, biodiversity-friendly designed business premises can not only bring a significant ecological benefit. At the same time, quality of workplaces for employees can be noticeably improved, costs saved and a contribution made to climate protection and climate change adaptation without impairing the economic function.
Today’s customers also expect companies to take responsibility and make their contribution to the protection of nature and local landscape. In addition, the political framework conditions and requirements with regard to the promotion and protection of biodiversity in settlement areas are constantly being strengthened.
By designing biodiversity-oriented business premises these increased expectations can be met. This often does not require much more than a rethinking and a change of habitual courses of action.
This online-seminar will provide insights into the potentials and principles of biodiversity-oriented business premises. Low-threshold measures as well as comprehensive concepts and principles of proper maintenance are explained. It also presents possible measures in different climatic geo-zones in Europe.
Speakers participating are Frieder Weigand, landscape gardener and Project Manager at Lake Constance Foundation, Štefan Jančo, Program Manager at Ekopolis, Marina Hämmerle, arquitect at Construction Culture Office of Voralberg Government, and David Álvarez, Executive Manager at Ecoacsa, who will show participants real biodiversity-oriented business premises examples adopted in Germany, Slovakia and Spain with positive results for people and nature.
