Biodiversity and nature
Helping clients worldwide protect and restore nature by achieving strategic biodiversity ambitions and delivering nature-based solutions.
Advancing biodiversity and climate action
Biodiversity supports everything in the environment we need to survive. We help clients halt and reverse nature loss, going beyond limiting damage to creating a positive impact.

Our services include:
- Biodiversity strategy and science-based targets for nature
- Biodiversity net gain for development
- Biodiversity for international finance
- Corporate sustainability reporting for biodiversity and ecosystems
- Ecological surveys and assessments
- Marine ecosystems and coastal resilience
- Natural capital assessments and accounting
- Nature-based solutions and restoration
- Nature risks in value chains, operations, and portfolios

Is 2022 the year nature-based solutions finally become the norm?
Biodiversity loss is one of humanity’s top three threats. Could nature-based solutions be the answer? An oyster regeneration project in Staten Island and a ‘rain garden’ in Copenhagen hold some answers.
Benefits of offshore infrastructure for marine ecosystems
Ensuring biodiversity and ecosystem services is at the forefront of decommissioning planning
Biodiversity Net Gain – How greening developments can benefit us all
Historically, a lack of robust consideration of biodiversity within the planning system has led to a cumulative loss and degradation of habitats over many decades. With land availability at a premium and developers looking to maximise yield from their investment, dedicating areas of potentially developable land for biodiversity improvements represents a commercial and logistical challenge.
Redeveloping land for data centre boom
Our engineering and environmental teams helped gain planning consent for Langley Business Park in west of London, while increasing site value and addressing local development objectives.
Electric grid delivering conservation gains
To facilitate a build-out of energy infrastructure that does not put sensitive species and habitats at risk, Ramboll partnered with Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks (SSEN) to protect local wildlife in the Lairg-Loch Buidhe transmission reinforcement project.
Ecosystem services in PPP regulations
Embedding ecosystem services in plant protection product (PPP) regulations. Providing a decision-making framework to drive sustainable herbicide use in crop production - to balance protection of crops and beneficial plants and control weeds detrimental to food production.
