Barcelona Synchrotron Park publishes a guide to promote biodiversity in its buildings
Creating economic wealth at the service of society and at the same time preserving the natural capital, that is, the economic value of the services offered for free by nature, is part of the challenge to achieve a necessarily sustainable growth and Barcelona Synchrotron Park (BSP) does its part.

Indeed, the Park, awarded by the EU Business & Biodiversity label, has already carried out different actions in this field: permeability of road infrastructures, restoration of natural habitats, creation of shelters to promote birds and other fauna to control pests, naturalised drainage systems (green ditches) or agreements with farmers to promote biodiversity-suited dry croplands in the green corridor and on undeveloped plots.

The BSP’s global action program designed to enhance its green infrastructure and support biodiversity can be downloaded here.
In this program, Action 8 corresponds to promote green infrastructure in buildings: with the technical support of Minuartia, BSP has prepared and published a guide (in Catalan) for the companies already established in the park and new companies that want to set up in.

The guide (in Catalan) includes a set of actions, measures and good practices to promote the conservation of biodiversity and the minimization of the use of resources. The proposed measures are structured in three thematic blocks: Gardening practices to favor wild fauna and flora, good maintenance practices and application of nature-based solutions. Each includes a brief description, practical advice, links to relevant information and reference examples. Together, it represents a very useful tool to encourage and facilitate companies the process of implementing actions to favor biodiversity and green infrastructure.
