Building with nature offers us a more sustainable alternative to engineered (grey) infrastructure. Its regenerative characteristics make it more efficient, less carbon-intensive, and less expensive to manage and maintain. It offers long-term value for money.
What is more, NBI provides a wide range of additional social and environmental benefits—from preserving biodiversity and sequestering carbon to creating jobs and improving citizens’ well-being. It can also play a key role in helping communities adapt to climate change by alleviating the effects of extreme weather events such as floods, droughts, and storms.
