Biodiversity is vital for survival
Biodiversity supports everything in nature that we need to survive: food, clean water, medicine, shelter. To halt and reverse nature loss, there is a shift away from damage limitation, mitigation and ‘No Net Loss’ to instead creating a positive impact and ‘Net Gain’.
According to The Future of Nature and Business 2020, over half of the global GDP – $44 trillion – is potentially threatened by nature loss. As we see the biodiversity crisis deepen, the United Nations gives us four principles to turning biodiversity loss into biodiversity value: know your true impact, plan together, grow with nature and value nature.
Integrating climate and nature solutions
We need to change the way we eat, live, grow, build and power our lives to achieve a carbon-neutral, nature positive economy and to halt and reverse biodiversity loss by 2030. Strategies for preventing impacts to nature from development, permitting or contamination are well established, but identifying opportunities for positive enhancement are also becoming mainstream. Nature-based solutions (NbS) means working with nature to prevent the worst impacts of climate change, biodiversity and ecosystem loss. NbS build resilience and can realise co-benefits, such as improved air quality, enhanced health and wellbeing, and are cost-effective.
Ramboll helps clients around the world with solutions that focus on the protection, regeneration and restoration of ecosystems or compensate with the creation of new ecosystems, such as green-blue infrastructure in our cities.

How we can help
Ramboll’s certified ecologists, conservation biologists and environmental economists are biodiversity net gain leaders. Our experts train others in the industry, sharing knowledge gained from developing policies and guidance, including United Nations, European Commission, industry groups and chartered institutes. At the forefront of industry standards, Ramboll’s team of experts have been influential in helping develop the natural capital accounting standard (BSI), biodiversity net gain (BNG) and metric development, Science Based Targets for Nature, and the Taskforce on Nature-related Financial Disclosures (TNFD).

Credentials and experience
Our suite of leading-edge technology can monitor land assets, and our advisors lead on biodiversity and ecosystems metrics, restoration, and nature-based solutions across the world. Combining our multi-disciplinary services with scientific expert know-how, we advise across the whole project lifecycle ensuring measurable, integrated, and cost-effective nature positive solutions.
Why is nature positive action needed now?
People and nature are experiencing drastic rates of planetary change, including extreme weather events and species extinction. Humans have been putting pressure on nature by consuming its resources without supporting recovery and have already transformed over 70% of land surfaces and are using about three-quarters of freshwater resources. However, there are tremendous gains by embracing nature transformation now. WEF Future of Nature and Business states that nature-positive transitions could generate up to US$10.1 trillion in annual business value and create 395 million jobs by 2030.
The Partner for Sustainable Change
With our new strategy, The Partner for Sustainable Change, our business will be driven by four unifying themes - the biggest and toughest global challenges we face today – decarbonisation, resilient societies, resource management and circularity, and biodiversity and ecosystems.
Taking decisive action to restore biodiversity to thriving ecosystems is one of today's biggest opportunities.
