The Endorsement Process
1. A One Planet Action Plan
With targets and strategies responding to all 10 One Planet principles and the programme specific Common International Targets (CITs). Action Plans remain ‘live’ and so can be updated to reflect changing knowledge, understanding and conditions. The Action Plan is made publicly available on the programme website upon endorsement;
2. A commitment to deliver the One Planet Action Plan
Through the inclusion of outline implementation strategies in the One Planet Action Plan; and
3. A commitment to an Annual Review of progress
To identify areas where further support from BioRegional may be required and to highlight areas of learning.
To find out more visit the Annual Review section of this site.
BioRegional’s Footprinting Manager reviews each project for its commitment to meeting the Common International Targets by 2020 as demonstrated by the targets and strategies in the One Planet Action Plan and supporting documentation.
A real commitment to meeting the Targets should enable a project to achieve the programme’s headline aim of creating places where it is easy, attractive and affordable for future resident’s to live a healthy, happy lifestyle within a fair share of the earth’s resources by 2020.
The Footprinting Manager will then make a recommendation to BioRegional’s internal One Planet Steering Group as to whether a project should be endorsed and a final decision will be collectively taken.
Successful projects will sign a Memorandum of Understanding with BioRegional, entitling them to use the ‘planet with a heart’ logo, and will receive support from BioRegional’s One Planet Communities team throughout the duration of the project.
