About the BSI Flex 702

This standard will provide a common set of methodology requirements for schemes issuing biodiversity units in the UK to govern emerging biodiversity markets (both compliance and voluntary). Research identified a need for a common approach across biodiversity schemes in operation and development across the UK to drive consistency where varying approaches and metrics are being developed. The standard will build on the IPNIS, align to emerging global biodiversity market standards and work with established UK schemes.
