Protecting biodiversity and regenerating natural systems

Protecting biodiversity and regenerating natural systems

Reduce biodiversity loss. See our Nature Conservation guidance.

By working towards a circular economy, re-using, repairing, remanufacturing and recycling, you are saving on raw materials, natural resources, and so withdrawing less resources from the environment.

By avoiding and minimising pollution of the natural environment, biodiversity will be encouraged. See all our NetRegs guidance on avoiding pollution of the natural environment.
