Investigating the implications of Planetary Boundaries on built environment projects
As built environment specialists, Arup is invested in ensuring that our projects not only mitigate environmental damage, but that they also consider the restoration of natural systems. To date there is no satisfactory framework to provide guidance as to whether a project can achieve this goal. Arup has been investigating the potential use of the Planetary Boundaries (PB) framework for application in the built environment. This research update reports on Arup’s progress.
