Advisory services

The Bioregional North American team draws upon and contributes to the international expertise of Bioregional’s advisory practice within the One Planet Communities program. Our advisory practice is based on lessons learned and best practices from our pioneering work building leading green developments such as BedZED and developing comprehensive sustainability strategies for enterprises around the world.

Our  team has a broad range of hands-on expertise, including: training eco-concierges and property teams in occupant engagement tactics that increase building efficiency and reduce tenant footprint; fostering collaborative consumption in multi-family buildings; development of online assessment and footprinting tools; green building materials (in particular interior fit-up and LEED compliance); carbon and ecological footprinting; community engagement, integrated design, facilitation, asset-mapping and social marketing skills; facilitation of integrated design teams; green marketing and retail web strategies; sustainable business, knowledge management and change management; environmental law and policy reform; and zero (fossil) energy developments.

We have worked on many of the leading green developments in North America and are deeply networked with cutting-edge developments and sustainability initiatives world-wide.
