European Green Premises (EGP 2022)

Hybrid conference on the economic, social and ecological benefits of biodiversity to businesses


Wednesday, 14.09.2022 9:30 - 17:00

Thursday, 15.09.2022 9:00 - 12:30

Wiesbaden, Germany


We invite you to join us on our journey towards a more biodiverse and greener future of company (premises).

With the participants from businesses, real estate management, planning actors, local and federal politics, nature conservation associations, and science, we want to advance the mainstreaming of biodiversity-oriented premises and lay the foundation of a Europe-wide initiative for biodiversity-oriented design of company premises. Best practice approaches from companies that have already initiated the transformation on their premises can provide answers to challenges and point the way to a more sustainable future.

Furthermore, we will present the monitoring system developed within the EU LIFE project BooGI-BOP and initiate the first steps towards a certification system for biodiversity-oriented design. In order to reach stakeholders from all over Europe, the conference will be held in a hybrid format. With the help of simultaneous translation, language barriers are eliminated. Despite the possibility to participate online, we cordially invite you to attend in person, because the personal exchange, as well as the participation in the workshops, is irreplaceable.

The SOKA-BAU as host of the conference is a prime example of biodiversity promotion with its comprehensive biodiversity-oriented design elements. An excursion across the company premises following the program will make the conference an exciting event for all in attendance participants and will provide space and time for networking.
