Together towards nature-inclusive building

KPN asset target value for nature-inclusive building

From the Knowledge Naturally! program, an expert team has developed the knowledge question: 'What is nature-inclusive and when does an object meet this?'. The question comes from client KPN. By answering the question, the telecom provider wants to make better use of its infrastructure for biodiversity. The end product, a table for nature-inclusive construction, gives not only KPN, but everyone, a handle on nature-inclusive actions

Topics that play a role in this are biodiversity in the city, living environment, awareness, the potential to make an impact on widespread new construction, and the link with other transitions such as climate adaptation. “The end product lays a foundation for measurable nature-inclusive construction,” says Fleur van Duin, co-researcher at Naturalis and biology student at Leiden University. “And we hope that it serves as a source of inspiration for organizations that have the same question."
