It’s essential that we manage our built environment in a way that protects and enhances our natural environment
Norfolk Environmental Credits is working to enable sustainable development, which balances protecting and enhancing the biodiversity of our natural environment with delivering much needed homes and development opportunities. Balancing the environmental, social, and economic considerations is a big challenge. We are a not-for-profit company where developers buy credits and environmental schemes benefit from the investment generated by the sale of credits.
Credits linked to local schemes
We are a not-for-profit company investing in local schemes that mitigate nutrient loads entering our waterways.
We sell the resulting nutrient neutrality credits, for both phosphorus and nitrogen, to developers to enable sustainable housing development by offsetting the nutrients arising from the new homes.
