What we do

The world is changing. These days business profitability is directly impacted by the extent to which companies incorporate biodiversity into their planning and operations.

Through our extensive network of highly skilled and experienced ecologists we can provide you with the support to boost your staffing and resources on specific projects in a timely manner.

Tapping into our network enables your business to be responsive to the changing and often seasonal demands of ecological work without having to carry the burden of employing people.

Thinking about green issues is no longer a fringe activity, the remit of long-haired hippies working against commercial values. We deliver a range of ecological services to the business community at both a strategic and a project level to enable you to manage your ecological risks and maximise opportunities.

From providing guidance and support on the development of Biodiversity Footprinting at a corporate strategic level through to delivery of project specific work such as surveys, Ecological Impact Assessments (EcIA), protected species surveys and mitigation and monitoring, we respond to the challenges businesses face across a range of sectors. We work with you as part of your team, whether you are focusing on specific details of a site, such as performing a great crested newt survey, or whether you need support pulling together analysis of your global supply chain.

Our scientific research background ensures that the service you receive produces meaningful results on the back of a robust process. Biocensus is led by a core team of highly qualified ecologists. Equally we are business people. Our eyes are always firmly fixed on the business need behind the ecological work undertaken. It is critical to us that we understand and enable your business to achieve its aims and objectives. One of our central objectives is to build long-term partnerships with our clients.

Our combination of ecological knowledge and business acumen can help you navigate biodiversity issues effectively. The risks incurred by ignoring biodiversity issues include:

  • challenges to license to operate
  • the disruption of supply chain
  • damage to brand image
  • fines
  • third-party claims for environmental damages and future environmental liabilities
  • lower ratings in the financial markets

Not to be ignored whatever sector you work in. Conversely the opportunity to boost profitability and move towards sustainable business growth is significant.

We can help you to put the right strategy in place to transform these risks into opportunities.
