We believe that we can achieve more for wildlife by working together, everyone has a part to play in achieving nature's recovery.
Landowning businesses can be a positive force for nature’s recovery and we want to recognise and celebrate those businesses which have achieved excellence. The Wildlife Trusts’ Biodiversity Benchmark is the only standard that certifies management of your business landholdings for wildlife.
Biodiversity Benchmark is designed to complement ISO14001 and tests the design and implementation of a business’s management systems to achieve continual biodiversity enhancement and protection on their landholdings. Over 8,700ha of land on 53 sites have met the standard, read some of their stories below.
