Environmentally responsible at our sites and within our operations.
BioCity is committed to the operation of environmentally responsible sites, through minimising our carbon footprint, enhancing local biodiversity and limiting waste.
In parallel, the steps we take create opportunities for our client companies to take advantage of and benefit from, enabling them to work towards the collective goal of environmental sustainability.
2019| HOW DID WE DO?
2019 Goal #1: Transform currently underutilised outdoor areas into green spaces, creating urban wildlife habitats.
In 2019, we began working with a new landscaping contractor at BioCity in Glasgow who specialises in biodiverse landscapes. Working with Kene landscaping, our landscapes are now managed to ensure wildlife thrives, for example leaving certain areas to grow wild to allow habitats to go undisturbed.
Welcome to F[u]N.
Finding [urban] Nature (F[u]N) is a RHS Silver medal-winning garden designed by Eds Higgins. The garden was inspired by a brownfield ‘Island site’ just behind BioCity in Nottingham which was once a collection of wildflowers in the summer, now an asphalt-covered car park.
His medal-winning garden, celebrates the hidden charm of wasteland sites, highlighting the importance of urban spaces for wildlife. It further recognises them as valuable assets that can help improve mental health and wellbeing and build a sense of community.
