What’s new

Bioregional has signed the Divest Invest pledge. That means it promises to take all of the funds in its group pension plan, its reserves and savings out of fossil fuel investments within five years. It will invest a portion of these funds in climate change solutions such as renewable energy, clean tech and energy efficiency.
Bioregional is understood to be the first UK-based operational charity – one that works directly with society rather than providing funding to other NGOs – to sign the pledge. We call on other charities and social enterprises to do the same. Divest Invest is a Read More

Practice

The way we work is designed to deliver impact in everything we do with our partners.


Our best creative strategies and projects involve working with our local partners to make things happen and show what can be practically achieved, just as we did with BedZED.

We want to make a real difference, inspire others to do the same and work with our partners to make innovative and lasting changes happen.

We do this through the practical implementation of projects, using and applying our unique One Planet Living framework. We scale up our impact by influencing policy and practice.

We apply creative thinking to challenges that need a fresh perspective or where an entirely new approach is required.

We are always seeking to improve, so we measure, research and evaluate and, if necessary, adapt or amend our approach.

One Planet Living

One Planet Living is our vision of a world in which people enjoy happy, healthy lives within the natural limits of the planet, wherever they live in the world, leaving space for wildlife and wilderness.

Our One Planet Living framework, based on ten easy-to-grasp principles, enables those we work with to plan for, communicate and deliver sustainable development. The framework provides a clear, practical route map for those who are seeking a better way to live and do business.
