IEMA adds to its series of e-briefings with a new guide explaining biodiversity offsetting

IEMA’s latest e-briefing, An introduction to biodiversity offsetting, was published at the beginning of September. It explains the concept of biodiversity offsetting and why interest in it is growing.

The briefing is free to download from IEMA's website. The series of e-briefings, exclusively available to members, offers condensed, digestible and useful information on key environmental management and assessment topics.

Already published in the series since May 2011 are e-briefings on green tariff electricity, schemes and standards for greenhouse-gas reporting and carbon neutrality.

To download the biodiversity offsetting briefing or the three others in the series, members must log in using their access details. Also, keep checking online for updates as further titles are to be published in the coming weeks.
