Home | Sectors | Land Management | Biodiversity & Natural Capital

Welcome to the Biodiversity & Natural Capital sector at ESS Expo, the area dedicated to the preservation and enhancement of ecological values.

This sector sits at the intersection of decommissioning, demolition, and land remediation with construction and infrastructure, and emphasises the crucial roles that biodiversity and ecosystems play in sustaining environmental health and contributing to economic stability through natural capital.

In this zone, attendees will discover innovative approaches and technologies aimed at conserving biodiversity and maximising the economic advantages of natural capital. This includes strategies for habitat restoration, biodiversity offsetting, and the integration of ecosystem services into urban and rural planning and development. The showcase also highlights tools for assessing and monitoring ecological impacts and the financial valuation of ecosystem services.

This zone is essential for environmental consultants, land use planners, conservation biologists, and policy makers, offering them a platform to network with thought leaders and peers, discuss challenges and opportunities, and explore new advancements in ecological conservation and management.
