About Bioregional

Bioregional is one of the UK’s original sustainability consultancies. Founded in 1994, we have been winning awards and working with partners to create cutting-edge solutions to sustainability for almost 30 years.

As a purpose-led organisation, our mission is to help businesses and communities to respond to the climate and ecological emergency, and to create a world in which we can live happy and healthy lives within the limits of our planet’s resources.

We focus on real world impact, acting as a ‘critical friend’ to our clients and challenging them to innovate at the boundaries of best practice. We have built our expertise, knowledge, and reputation by collaborating with leading industry players, from leading multinational retailers to housebuilders, real estate investors, pension funds, and local authorities.

We are a social enterprise. This means that unlike other consultants, we have no partners or shareholders. We use any surpluses we make to fund practical projects and educational resources that enable people to live more sustainably, and then share this learning with industry and policymakers to drive systemic change.

We are the creators of the One Planet Living framework, which provides a vision and a toolkit for creating healthy and happy lifestyles within the limits of our one planet, and which we make free to use by everyone. These principles have guided the development of exemplar projects across the world – in the UK these include BedZED, the UK's first large-scale eco-village, the sustainability strategy for London’s bid to host the 2012 Summer Olympics, and the UK's first eco-town, Elmsbrook, in Oxfordshire.
