Environmental Net Gain

Environmental Net Gain (ENG) does not yet have a single agreed definition; it can be summarised as improving all aspects of environmental quality through a scheme or project.

Achieving environmental net gain means achieving biodiversity net gain first, and going further to achieve increases in the capacity of affected natural capital to deliver ecosystem services and make a scheme’s wider impacts on natural capital positive.
