Improving and protecting biodiversity is a key component in tackling the climate crisis. A loss of biodiversity is inextricably linked to the worst impacts of our warming planet, including more intense and frequent fires, storms and periods of drought.

Biodiversity Action Plan Open accordion

We implement a Biodiversity Action Plan at all of our sensitive sites. This means making an assessment of our UK sites deemed ‘significant’ using an LRQA-assured biodiversity toolkit. An independent ecologist assures the evaluation and action plans are drawn up where necessary.

Our target Open accordion

Our target is to implement 100% of the actions within the sites’ plans by 2023, and we are well on track.

Our target
Restored land Open accordion

We have restored 1,412 hectares of land at our closed landfill sites. We plan to restore a further 97 hectares by 2025. This will equate to the restoration of 98% of the landmass of our landfill sites.

Our biodiversity compliance ranking against our environmental permits is the best it has ever been (since we started recording data in 2009). This makes us one of the best performers with the Environment Agency.
