To ensure that the One Planet Action Plan is integrated seamlessly from design through construction to estates management, BioRegional provides a ‘project buddy’ or Sustainability Integrator for the project who works with the team to put into practice to strategies and targets outlined in the Action Plan.
The role of a Sustainability Integrator
To ensure that the One Planet Action Plan is integrated seamlessly from design through construction to estates management, the One Planet Communities programme introduces the role of Sustainability Integrator into the development process.
Depending on the scale of the project it is recommended that there is at least one Sustainability Integrator whose function is to ensure that the sustainability considerations of the One Planet Action Plan are implemented.
Using the initial (outline or design) One Planet Action Plan as the key document, the Sustainability Integrator is responsible for working with the various teams to create the construction stage Action Plan and the long term (sometimes called the estates, property or facilities) management Action Plan.
