The BiodiverCity® labels are tools for evaluating and promoting the consideration of biodiversity for all real estate assets.
These approaches are expected by stakeholders in the sector (project managers, constructors, real estate firms, ecologists, landscapers, users, investors and architects) who also see in these labels a visible and relevant criterion for bringing added value to a real estate asset. and meet their commitments to biodiversity.
A project manager with a construction or renovation project submits their project.
The project manager calls upon a IBPC-certified assessor, whose role is to gather evidence of compliance of the operation with label indicators. The status of assessor is achieved through training and successful exams.
The auditing is done by an independent entity. It inspects conformity of the report and the assessment.
The compliant report is sent to IBPC, which in turn attributes a IBPC certificate for the project.
BiodiverCity® certifications demands the intervention of a “biodiversity” expert (qualified, familiar with the indicators) who serves as specialised APM, consultant and assessor.
The BiodiverCity® accredited assessor begins by establishing a biodiversity diagnosis of the site, and is later entrusted with the mission of consistently improving the biodiversity profile of each project using relevant, coherent and effective elements.
Using the BiodiverCity® indicators, the BiodiverCity® accredited assessor also relies on emerging issues, a number of scientific concepts, but which are eventually understood by all members of a multidisciplinary team. To work as an assessor, an individual must be accredited by IBPC.
